My son and I were siting in the Kitchen when a military helicopter flew low overhead (under 500'). We went outside to see what was happening and we saw the first helicopter flying south. Then a a 2nd helicopter was spotted to our west at about 1500'. It was also flying south.

We stood outside for a minute watching the 2nd helicopter and looking across the sky to see what they were following. That is when an overhead star I was directly looking at started to move. It was much higher than the two helicopters and it started flying south too, but then turned up into the sky and disappeared into the distance.
