Large Diamond Shape UFO sighted by a group of 50 people during a UFO sighting at Giant Rock, CA, was chased by a military helicopter.

I was one of the people with night vision goggles to confirm the object. The guide pointed there is a large object, low on the horizon, on the other side of the Giant Rock. We were all gathered at the South side of the Giant Rock, just on the side of the paved area. I had sensed something close by at same time the Guide pointed to the area of sky behind the Giant Rock. The window of view was very narrow, between Giant Rock and the smaller rock at the East side of it.

At that point, I didn't have a NVG on hand, the object was very large, visible to the naked eye. A girl with NVG on hand handed it to me to confirm the object is a UFO as she was new to it and not sure how to use the NVG. I took the NVG and focused it to a clear view as it was blurry at that point.

With NVG now, I observed the object for about 2min, flying West/Southwest towards and behind the Spy Mountain. It had a Diamond shape around it with a round center and a much smaller round darker area! at the 1/3 point from the bottom. It had a very pale orange tint to it at this point.

Soon after it disappeared behind the Spy Mountain, the 2 helicopters showed up from the Northeast side across the valley, and next thing we saw was one of them chasing the UFO going towards South from behind the mountain.
