UFO Hovering In My Backyard

While laying in the bed, my husband and I heard what we thought was a helicopter right outside our window. After 15 minutes, I got up and looked out the window to verify if the helicopter was out there. There I saw a large object that had a square and a slight circular shape. There were red lights on each end. And it was hovering just above the trees in between my yard and my neighbors. The sound the object was making was similar to a helicopter in close proximity. I shouted, "Oh my God! What is that!?"

My husband immediately got up and looked out the window. He also shouted in disbelief. The object begin to move away slowly. We ran to our son's room who is 19 years old so he too could witness what we saw. He observed the object as it moved on, in disbelief. As the object moved on, there were 2 military helicopters that followed the object from a short distance. The helicopters continued to fly around our area for another 30 minutes. As if monitoring the object.

We continue to question ourselves in disbelief. However, we are clear the object was not an airplane, helicopter or drone. And after researching UFO sightings, we know this was indeed a UFO.
