|Large object with hot pink glowing light in front and turquoise blue light in back descending with no trail and disappeared at dusk.
I was on my 2nd story deck, which is about 3 stories high, and it was not quite dark when I looked to the North East and saw an object that appeared to be falling out of the sky. What was odd, was that it seemed to be a long enough object that it had quite a space between it's lights. A very bright hot pink burning light at the front of it, and a bright turquoise blue light burning at the back of it with a decent sized space in between the lights which gave it the appearance of being a long object. I thought for sure it was a plane going down, but there was no smoke and no trail like a meteor. It was low on the horizon and didn't travel a great distance, but I had no idea how far away it was. It seemed large in proportion to the normal air traffic I see in my horizon. I yelled to my guest..."____, Come here quick!" and it was still visible while I said that after I spotted it, so I know it had to be visible for at least 6-8 seconds before it just disappeared. I've seen lots of meteors in the daylight, and the colors of this object and the distance between the bright colors made me think for sure it was an aircraft going down. However, it just disappeared with no smoke and no sound. About a half an hour later, a large helicopter hovered in the sky for over 30 minutes in the general direction I had seen the object, and then the helicopter just took off to the West, almost over me. By then it was dark. There was no sound that I heard from the object, and it did not leave a trail at all even as it flew through the sky and appeared to be going down right before it disappeared in a clear sky.
