Large blue light seen at night hovers and descends to earth

In 1987 (?), my family and I were camping at a rendezvous/mountain man camping area in Kansas. Between 10 and 10:30 p.m., I stepped outside of our tipi and approached a friend of my father's to chat. Suddenly, I spotted off toward the east a large blue light that hovered still for a few minutes not moving. Before I knew what had happened, I saw it drop like a stone to the earth in a straight downward motion. There was no accompanying sound. Afterwards, I asked my father's friend if he had seen what I'd seen, and he said that he had but didn't know what it was.
