Possible UFO chased by fighter jet over or near Fort Bragg/Pope AFB NC.

I was sitting outside on the patio smoking a cigar. It was shortly after sundown with some lingering clouds that were illuminated brightly because of the bright moon. Looking distantly towards the north/northwest I saw an object with a reddish glow move from the east to the west. The light did not blink, so my first thought was that the object was the space station flying overhead. It had been a few years since I've seen the space station overhead, so I was excited to see it again. But then I realized that the trajectory was not they typical pattern the space station orbits over the earth. As I began to realize that this object was possibly not the space station, another object with a flashing light akin to an aircraft or fighter jet began to follow the first object. It sped up as if it were trying to catch up to it and then when it got to a certain distance from the first object, it locked in the same speed and maintained its course and distance with the first object. I watched for a few more seconds before I lost view of both objects behind the clouds. This could have occurred either over Fort Bragg or Pope AFB or just to the north of these military installations. I am located about 2 miles south of the Reilly gate of Fort Bragg. No noises were heard and no definitive shapes could be identified.
