tuesday evening 2/11/14. . i was in the house sitting down in front of my computer after just coming in from the backyard & settleing down for the night. as i was looking up parts for my wife 98 toyota tocoma i herd a helicopter, common for this area but the one thing that cought my attention & made it stand out/different from any other day/night was how loud it was & how low it soundeed to the house. . it gave off a very deep rumble & was really really loud. i droped what i was doing & ran outside to see what was going on & why it was flying so low. ( backyard faces west ) i ran ouside trying to avoiding my dog from running over him i saw that the ground in the backyard was lit up pretty good. i say "lit up" because it was dark out & we have a patio cover so the sky is some what blocked, as i went out the sliding back door to my right i immediately saw an orb like, star shining object that was being chased by a helicopter. . .now the helicopter did have it's search light on so i'm gussing thats what the light was, so when i looked up i didn't even see the helicopter at first all i saw was a bright white orb then the helicopter thats how low the two were. i viewed the helicopter chasing the orb ( orb made no noise ) from the west going towards the east i started yelling ( my dog was barking ) for my wife family members ( mom,dad )& was at awww on just how low these two were in the sky & on how the orb was just so bold & solid & brillent. .it was like a star passing by right in front of me. the helicopter had it's blinking red & white lights on with the search light but when the helicopter shined the light on the orb it kept going out, or so it seemed. i viewed these two flying towards the east way off into the distance & keeped viewing for as long as i could when the orb suddenly disapered for 2/4 sec's then reappared for another 20 sec's then disapered again.
