I was visiting La Mirada, California. I saw a bright light traveling north to south and it traveled directly above me. This sighting was for 4 minutes from 9:03-907 pm Sunday night on 22 June 2014. I first noticed the bright light in the northern sky over La Mirada Regional Park. It was bright and low. It flew directly overhead and continued towards Fullerton. I was standing about one block south of the park. I am guessing that around the border of La Mirada and Fullerton the brightly lite object slowly faded out. For a few seconds, I could see the city lights reflect off the very dark, black object. This sighting was unusual in that there was a police helicopter traveling with it and at about the same speed. The helicopter and the brightly lite object were only a few hundred feet apart. The helicopter was not directly under it, but was slightly west of it. After both objects passed me and were almost in Fullerton, the helicopter made a 90 degree turn to the east passing under the glowing object. About 10 seconds later, the glowing object slowly faded out over a 4 or 5 second period of time. That is when I could see the city lights reflect off the dark or black object. The object looked to be about the same size as the helicopter, even though it was a little higher than the helicopter. Of course I can't say whether the officer in the helicopter saw the glowing object, but it sure looked like the helicopter was following it.
