Brite white light with a downward tail

My wife and two daugthers were leaving for the store, and I walked out with them. My dauther ((deleted)) asked if when she came back from the store, she & I could setup the telescope and look at the stars. I said it would be ok and then we looked up at the sky toward CASSIEOPIA when we saw a bright light that was about the same size and briteness as Venus is when it is in the night sky, just one hand to the right of Cassieopia and about two fingers lower. It made a little ziz zag side to side and appeared to have a tail/beam appx. a finger width shining down and comming to a point at the bottom. We all saw it for about 15 sec, then it just got real fuzzy looking and just blinked out.
