Strange light captured on CNN "Special Report" from Baghdad

At apx 3:20 EST a "breaking news" report came on about 2 explosions in Baghdad. The field reporter was Brent Sadler (spelling). While he was reporting, a live shot of the smoke was shown from one of the explosions. A helicopter flew close to the smoke plume closely followed by a white light. The chopper went out of the screen (the camera remained stationary) and the light slowed, "turned" around toward the smoke, then quickly pursued the chopper again. This may be an optical illusion on my part, but it certainly was convincing.
