Star-colored object flew over lighted porch, then shot off to the east of the Milky Way.

Tuesday night at 7:49pm on October 17th, I went out on my southernly facing porch to have a Marlboro. I was tired and leaned onto my railing to rest as I looked up to see what constellations were visible, when I noticed 2 planes( blinking red then white/repeating) that looked as if they were going to run into each other a couple thousand feet above the Gunnison airport, as they approached I could see that one was actually higher than the other and as they crossed over each other I suddenly heard what sounded like a huge muffled blowdryer (air humming or pulsating) and was instantly looking around in the sky directly above my house and didn't see anything at first, but then a huge round, very bright (led light/blueish white, like a star or led) gracefully flew into my sight from my roof area to the northwest of me, maybe only 500 feet above my house heading south as it moved from east to west very gracefully, all at the same time. When it passed, still heading so! uth, it only made it to a Willow line maybe 1000 ft from my house, at that time I realized I couldn't hear it anymore, freaked out and darted under a porch overhang I have and as I did it literally flew out of view as fast as lighting just to the east of the milky way. I ran inside freaking out to my spouse, thinking they (who/?) saw me, whether it was government or alien, I don't know but I do know they saw me and I didn't sleep all night, thinking whoever it was was going to come back for me, as stupid as that sounds. Two days later, Oct. 19th, I'm working near the gunnison airport and hear aircraft, like multiple choppers going all morning but never see anything, so I called a friend who works there and apparently the county is renting out our airport to the British military right now.

I go home, tell my spouse what I found out and that perhaps what I saw was a military aircraft that turned its led lights off and shot a laser beam of its same color toward the milky way, so ! anyone watching would think it was a UFO and that it was gone as soon as I'm telling my spouse this he asks me if what I saw looked like that and we were both watching a repeat of my experience much further away to the south of my porch. It was 7:53pm. My spouse thought I was crazy on the first night and now my spouse won't talk about it, all my spouse said is that it wasn't a laser beam. I can't stop thinking about this and who it was.
