Helicopter/airplane follows a fireball?

I was driving home from work on Talbot Road, my location was approximately one mile north of Valley Medical Center. I was on speaker phone having my nightly conversation with my mom. I noticed coming from east to west something interesting...

It was not raining, the sky was over-cast.

I saw what looked like a normal (I assume) helicopter/airplane lights red,green and white and about 50ft from the helicopter/airplane a red ball of light.

Mind me -my mother was on the phone with me the whole time. What caught my attention was how insinc they were flying together, it seemed that the helicopter was about 50ft behind this red ball of light the whole time. I kept my eyes on the second "craft" hoping that it would show some sort of running lights you would normally see when aircraft are in the sky, the red ball of light kept flickering and pulsating as it lead the helicopter/airplane from east to north-west. I pulled over into an old sub-division (I was scared that I would run into a car)where I had a view to watch this. The objects were about 200ft give or take? in the sky, they moved from Benson Hill-Talbot Road area across the Valley towards Southcenter Mall and what looked like the Burien area. It struck me as odd. I think we (humans) need to pay attention to the sky more.
