Police helicopter and a low flying, very brightly lite object, flying close together on 22 June over La Mirada, California.

I was visiting La Mirada, California. I saw a bright light traveling north to south and it also traveled directly above me. This sighting was for 4 minutes from 9:03-907 pm Sunday night on 22 June 2014. I first noticed the bright light in the northern sky over La Mirada Regional Park. It was bright and low. It flew directly overhead and continued towards Fullerton. The light did not change in intensity as it was coming towards me or when it traveled away from me. There were no flashing collision lights. I was standing about one block south of the park. I am guessing that around the border of La Mirada and Fullerton, less than a mile south of me, the brightly lite object slowly faded out. For a few seconds, I could see the city lights reflect off the very dark, black object. Just for a second I looked at the helicopter and when I tried to relocate the unlike black object, I could not find it. This sighting was unusual in that there was a police helicopter! traveling with the UFO and at about the same speed. The helicopter and the brightly lite object were only a few hundred feet apart. The helicopter was not directly under it, but was slightly west of it. After both objects passed me and were almost in Fullerton, the helicopter made a 90 degree turn to the east passing under the glowing object. About 10 seconds later, the glowing object slowly faded out over a 4 or 5 second period of time. That is when I could see the city lights reflect off the dark or black object.

The object looked to be about the same size as the helicopter, even though it was a little higher than the helicopter. Of course I can't say whether the officer in the helicopter saw the glowing object, but it sure looked like the helicopter was following it. I can't imagine that the officer did not see it, in fact, I had the impression he was following it.
