purple light dances around sky while disappearing and reappearing.

Around 11:00 pm we were called outside my mothers home by my brother-in-law to see a suspicious purple sphere moving vertically, horizontally, and in what seemed to be a figure 8 pattern. It continued to do this for 15 minutes. Then a helicopter which appeared to be a military helicopter showed up from the north and the object dropped in altitude and very quickly headed east. While the object was in site it would remain visable for a minute or so then disappeared and re-appear in a different location. We did take photographs of the object and upon zooming in we see a few different things. In one picture when zoomed in the object is a purple (like the purple from a black light) circle (kinda looks like a blood cell under a microscope) there is a light purple haze around the object. In another the object is the same color but is long and narrow in the front and has spheres at the rear. I've never seen anything move how this object moved and then for it to t! ake off when a helicopter came near seemed strange.
