Location: Irving, TX
Shape: Light
Duration: 20 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
UFO, with helicopters.

I observed a brilliant light west of my location. It was not Venus. It was not an airplane, or in usual flight path towards DFW. (I have worked at an airline at DFW for 24 years, I know the flight patterns and what an aircraft looks like.) This light was hovering, and so bight it radiated starburst. There were a dozen or so helicopters circling it. I shot video, you can clearly see helicopters going around the object, even passing over head. They are different than object, in they have the typical lighting after about 15 minutes, the light descended closer to ground, and then proceeds west, diminishing in intensity of brightness.
