Sighting Details

I was sitting in my truck out back of my restaurant going through figures when I heard an unusually loud helicopter noise approaching from the south. I exited my vehicle and tuened south, towards the noise to see a helicopter flying about 150-200ft altitude coming just about over my position. It was moving south to north and passed roughly 100 yards to the west of me. As it got closer I noticed what appeared to be a star out in front and a little left of the helicopter. They were moving at identical speed and the "star" looked to be roughly 1 1/2 lengths of the helicopter away from the helicopter. The helicopter was black or dark in color in the night sky so the body was not visible; however, based on the lights & noise coming from it, it was easy to estimate the size and distance. The star was difficult to see due to the lighting in the parking lot and it appeared to be faint nonetheless. When it registered to me that the helicopter was chasing something I ran into the building as it passed nearly over and yelled for the staff to follow me out front hoping for others to witness this strange event. By the time I got the front door open and we ran out the helicopter was at a distance and position that prevented anyone else from seeing the object it was chasing. This is the 2nd time I witnessed a star like object being followed by terrestrial aircraft in this town. The first time was roughly 4 miles due east of this location approximately 1 1/2 years ago. I thought what I saw was weird then and talked myself into believing my eyes were tricking me. But after seeing this a 2nd time, I am sure something star he is happening now.
