A slow moving white glowing object moved south to north across the night sky and seemed to be move almost directly overhead of us. It made no noise and looked like a satellite. However, about 45 seconds after the object had tracked across the sky two Cobra helicopter gunships that were following the object came into view and continued to track the object until we lost sight of the object and helicopters.
