bright light being followed by fighter jet repeatedly for approx 45 minutes

At approximately 3a.m. sunday morning, I heard the sound of a fighter jet in the sky, I went to the window to look and saw a white/yellow bright star shaped object in the northern sky, moving west and behind it at a higher altitude, was one fighter jet. The object remained very bright for about 20 to 30 seconds, and then light dimmed to a small white object/ball while still moving ahead of the fighter jet going west. This happened every 7 to 8 minutes for 45 minutes. Every time the sound of the fighter jet would approach, the objects light would appear in the same spot moving in the same direction, continuing to dim and move in a somewhat fast pace, always ahead of the fighter jet. It seems they were going in circles from west to south to east and north. The night was extremely clear with a full moon. What do you think????
