Pulsating Golden Coil seen at 30 feet height 90 foot distance from observer - floating slowly to earth

At approximately 7:00 (19:00) EST I peripherally saw a very bright flash nearby on my left side. I turned toward the source and was amazed to see what appeared to be a pulsating golden 'coil' or 'spring' - it was a big coil perhaps three to four feet in height - it was less than 90' away and was at a height of approximately 25-30 feet. It appeared to be floating very slowly down. This coil was a golden colored and oulsed coils from a 'cats eye color' to a brighjt bright gold. There may have been a diaphanous film around the coil - it all happened so fast Unfortunetly when I gave it my full attention - attempting to focus on it - it disappeared or more appropriately evaported like a mirage. This phenomena appeaed in a southwesterly direction and was quite close to me. It could only have been at most three to four seconds from the time I saw the flash until the time the coil disappeared.
