Shape: Light
Duration:1.5 minutes
Bright starlike red light in night sky that travelled vertically, slowly leaving a small red trail before disintegrating.

One bright red starlike light observed looking in the western night sky toward the ocean. The red light object dropped vertically, slowly, and left a small red trail and just disappeared. My daughter and I watched it together and she said Oh! it is a helicopter and when it just disintegrated we both knew it wasn't.

I am a photographer and have never seen anything like this before. My daughter is a teenager.
