Ball of light with helicopters in persuit.

A friend and I were camping out near a local resevoir named Settlement Canyon when we seen what we at first thought was a shooting star. It was not very big and was a deep orange/red color. It suddenly halted directly above us and we heard helicopters coming over the mountain behind us. The ball turned left and headed west very quickly with 3 or 4 helicopters right behind it. They headed off into the distance and we lost sight of them behind some trees.
