Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
3 lighted circular air craft dropped straight down out of my view into the hills.

I was driving along highway 4 towards the city of Rodeo. I noticed what I thought was a plane flying lower than the other two planes I had seen in the sky and it was also moving at a slower speed. After watching for about a minute it dropped straight down out of my view into the hills. It had a red, blue and an amber colored light and was in a triangle/circular pattern. It dropped at such a fast speed the lights left a trail for a second. I expected to see a possible explosion or smoke from a crash because I have never seen something drop at that rate of speed from the sky. Once the object went out of site I did not see it again. Thanks
