very bright light 25deg above horizon, near sunset. caught the attention of other motorist - suddenly vanished

as the sun was going down, me and my partner, where driving when my partner pointed at a stationary bright light in the sky. at first it looked like a very bright star. i pulled over, and we both got a better look at it. i noticed someone behind us also pulled over, got out of their car and looked at the same object as us. to the right of us was, was some dwellings, and noticed someone taking photos of the object, we could see the camera flash. this object started to drop in altatude. it started to look like a very bright tear drop about the size of a pea. the object was heading behind tree's. we moved the car to a different spot, but could not find it any more.

the sun was behind the object. yet the object had a very very intense light.

there where no clouds in the sky at the time.

did not hear anything on local radio, and did not talk to any other observers. my partner and i are both sane. we both believe what we saw was very strange, and out of place.

((NUFORC Note: Witness provides photograph, which does, indeed, look bizarre. If the second light in the sky is not caused by ice crystals refracting the Sun's light, then we do not know what the object is. PD))
