Large, brown/rust triangular object seen descending slowly before fading away

Over the western horizon, a large isoceles triangle shaped object was spotted descending slowly, approximately 600-700 ft in the air. The exact size of the object was indeterminate, but it seemed visible through light cloud cover and light pollution over old rt. 66, specifically 7th street Wal-mart. It faded from view before it fell much further, it may have also been moving westward at the time.
