|White, diamond-shaped craft with military escort
Late dusk, as my friend and I were riding our bikes home, I notice quite a few military helicopters flying directly overhead. They were flying in formation roughly 200 ft above sea level. This struck me as odd because military aircraft rarely flew anywhere near the area, so I stopped to see what was going on. Roughly 20 seconds later, a white, diamond-shaped craft flew overhead, roughly 100 feet above sea level -- much lower than the helicopters. It made no sound and no colors other than white were seen. It was fairly bright, but not so bright as to light the ground beneath. There were also no navigational lights. It was very large, with the sides spanning about 30 degrees of sky from my perspective. Total viewing time was 6-8 seconds. After it passed out of sight behind me, another 3 seconds or so passed when two F-4s (recognized by the sound) came screaming along the same path. These passed by about the same altitude of the helicopters, roughly 200 ft. They were moving very fast, as if they were moving to intercept. Ten to fifteen more seconds passed before three duel rotor helicopters (Chinook?) Slowly followed behind. I went home and told my mother.
