Red ball of light plummits towards ground and dissapears.

I was driving down I-235 near the 42nd Street exit when I saw a red ball of light enter my field of vision. It was heading diagnally down at a very fast rate. After about 5 seconds it simply disappeared. I am a ((undergraduate)) in college, and an U.S. Army ((personnel)) familar with conventional air craft. This object didn't ressemble any publicly acknowledged air craft.
