Tiara shaped cluster of lights and a single light departing from it toward the ground.

I was driving NW on 5th in Sumner WA toward the bridge over the Puyallup River when I noticed a group of lights in the sky above and slightly to the left of my position. This group of lights were clustered in the shape I would describe as a tiara or crown.

As i looked at this appearent object a single light departed from the object and descended toward the ground at a sharp angle, looking very much under control- moving steadily on in a straight line toward the Earth. I pulled over to the side of the road, afraid that I might lose sight of the object and rolled down my car window. The object had been pulsing slowly brighter then dimmer at a slow but steady pace during my observation of it and seconds after I stopped it faded into the clouds. I remained for a couple minutes to see if it might emerge again, but I saw nothing more.
