Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Bright object moved quickly, stopped and hovered without sound

I was walking my dog with my wife and kids when I noticed a bright light moving in the sky. There were no flashing lights, just a single bright light. It then stopped and hovered. At the same time, I noticed a helicopter flying toward the object. I thought maybe they were both helicopters, and the hovering object was waiting for the other helicopter, but the helicopter then passed beneath it and continued on its path, while the bright object remained.

The object appeared to omit a bright light but I could not see if it was shining a light on anything in particular on the ground.

It then moved at a very fast pace northeast some distance before hovering again. Occassionally it stopped omitting the bright light, seemed to disappear except for a faint blue light, and then would re-appear as a bright light. Eventually we could no longer see it as it moved further northeast.

My wife and our three kids all observed this. The speed which it moved suddenly and without any sound, and how it would briefly disappear and then re-appear, and what exactly it was doing has mystified me and my wife.
