Grey box-like craft, no lights, silent, being followed by a helicopter

I was over at my mom's house after we'd gone to see a movie. When we got back she had messages on her phone message machine and returned a call. I was sitting on the couch when I heard a very loud helicopter. It was so low it sounded like it would land on the house. Mom couldn't hear the person on the phone anymore it was so loud, and she hung up. Meanwhile, I ran out of the house to take a look. The chopper was just passing overhead flying from E to W. In front of it, and off to its left side, was a grey, box shaped craft. It had no lights. It was 7:30 p.m. and very clear that night. It was easy to see the color because mom's house as the crow flys is about 3 mi. from the strip in line with the light that comes up from the Luxor Hotel. The only noise I heard was from the chopper and there were lights on it. The object appeared to be about twice as wide as the helicopter and about half the length. But as it had already passed overhead I can't be sure about the length. By then my mom came outside too but the craft and helicopter had already passed over the neighborhood and out of sight. I was so upset that I hadn't run out sooner when I first heard the noise. Also, I wear driving glasses (for distance) which I wasn't wearing and wish I had been so I could have seen more detail of the object. I watched the news and papers but never heard anything about it. I wonder if you received other reports on this date from this area. My mom's house is near Tropicana and Eastern.
