UFO with five army helicopters following it over FT BLISS

We were on our way to a restaurant when my sister pointed out a silvery/white cigar shaped object in the sky. It was still and somewhat blended into the partly cloudy sky, but you could make it out. It stayed still in the sky for a very long while and even after we came out of the restaurant it was still there.

People were calling into the radio station that we were listening to talk and just rant about the strange object in the sky So it was a fact that numerous people had seen this thing in the sky, but there were no military crafts around it.

Then the sun set and the objected move towards the military base where were stationed at even over our neighborhood. There were about five ARMY HELICOPTERS surrounding it and the object was VERY LOW about the same level as the helicopters. The object's light was glowing red, purple, yellow and blue and it kept changing colors. It looked as if maybe the objected landed but im not sure.

The object disappeared and then so did the army helicopters. I saw this thing so close up it was something out of a movie with the helicopters following its every move. There was nothing on the news or in the papers about this. My whole family witnessed it not to mention all the people that called into the radio station.
