bright object lands near forest

We was driving south back towards Dixon in Maries County checking road conditions due to ongoing light snowfall and I witnessed a bright light moving from North to South that looked like a helicopter when i first witnessed it. It then hovered for about 5 seconds then went straight down towards the ground out of my sight.

We proceeded on up the road to a hill top at which time we stopped the vehicle and got out and looked and from there you could see an object on the ground that had alot of bright light around it with a reddish light or glow on the top.

This object was out in a field somewhat near the forest line. From the distance we was from the object it was hard to get a good lookat the object other than to see there was a good deal of light around the object.

We was too far away to determine if there was anyone around the object but there was no noise to be heard from the location we stopped in.

At that time we proceeded to continue our drive back into Dixon but the event occured over a period of about 4 minutes from the time i first spotted the object until the time we drove off.
