Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
Bright white light for 10 seconds with a fading shower

We saw a bright white light with a shower of light below it in the southern sky. The bright light faded and the shower faded. This all lasted about 20 seconds. My wife is a registered nurse and I am a professional civil engineer. From our vantage point, I estimate the vertical angle at about 40 degrees and the azmith at about 200 degrees.
