My daughter and I were out on the balcony, facing east, watching the stars. I saw a white light moving from south to east, and thought it was a satellite. I pointed it out to her and we both watched as it grew brighter, and closer, now moving north, and completely silent.

I called my husband and he watched it as well. The light quickly began to dim as it traveled off in the distance to the north. A couple of minutes later a helicopter followed it.

I live very close to the airport and Kirtland AFB. This was not an airplane, or helicopter, or satellite, but I thought it was interesting that a very loud helicopter followed the object.
