Military helicopter chasing orange star type object over small suburb in Chattanooga, TN.

At 0:15 I heard a very load helicopter. I step outside to a cloudy dark moonless night. So, trying to perceive the direction. I quickly realized that it was directly in front of me moving toward me.

As I started watching the chopper which looked as a military black chopper moving very fast. As it cleared the tree line 50 feet from me I could clearly see the chopper and the front blacked out, a red solid light on the left side and I beleive a green flashing light on right. It was only 300 feet max probably 250 above me.

I'm no expert but I've lived 500 feet from a small airport behind my house and that was the direction they where flying. At that point I realized that about 100 feet in front of the chopper was what I took as a bright orange star. Silent and moving fast.

As the 2 flew over me directly, I had to twist my head, and spin directly behind, to watch the chopper chasing this star disappear over the tree line. It was less than a minute that even the sound of this very loud chopper was gone.

I proceeded with a horrible headache.
