Bright reddish unidentified circular object suddenly appears in sky then is followed by helicopters.

As we were sitting outside of my home a circular unidentified flying object appeared on the right side of my house. We live in the country and are surrounded by trees. We have clear skies with minimal (to none) aircraft activity.

The object was silent, bright, did not leave a trail, was not moving at a constant speed, (the speed fluctuated from fast to slow etc.) did not have any flashing lights (just a constant reddish light and almost looked like a ball of light but we both could tell that it was some sort of flying object we'd never seen before. It's hard for me to describe the physical nature of the object. It didn't have a halo around it, but seemed to have a reddish outline; like a glow.

As it hovered over the trees across from my house it suddenly lifted up and flew over the road slowly moving to the right above a second set of trees.

The object suddenly disappeared in mid air. Prior to the disappearance I noticed two helicopters following close behind.

Approximately 20 minutes later another unidentified object appeared (possibly the same one) with the same appearance and characteristics of the first. It appeared suddenly on the left side of my home. We were watching the sky and there was no noise or activity when it appeared.

The same helicopters were circling the area the entire time. When the second object appeared they began following it. The helicopters seemed to get near the object and then it disappeared again in mid-air. The helicopters stayed for quite some time and continued to search the area for the object.
