Bright 'orb'-type light seen in sky before seeing it quickly fall and disappear - Fishers, Indiana

I awoke earlier than usual this morning, April 7, 2011, around 5:02 or 5:03 a.m. - went into kitchen - upon returning to Living Room where my windows are just about floor to ceiling - with a ‘half moon’ type top window over the bottom long window - I just happened to look up and out the ‘half moon’ window (which has no blind or covering) and which is about 8 feet or 9 feet high on the wall - and just then I spotted a very bright ‘orb’ type thing out the window - maybe a second or two later as I was rushing to the window to look out the blinds which are below the ‘half moon’ window - keeping my eye on the bright ‘orb’ in the sky - it started to FALL quickly in the sky.

By the time I reached the window which was about 9 feet from where I had been standing - the bright light ‘orb’ was completely gone - just vanished; I kept looking out the window to see if there would be any more movement or re-appearance, but there was nothing else. It was very bright and! large compared to the stars that were near it. It was eerie the way it just fell straight down from the sky.

Because of the fact that the bottom part of my window had blinds - I was only able to watch the orb until it started to plummet - then the bottom part of that window, because it had blinds over it, blocked me from viewing it any further. By the time I reached it and opened the blinds it was nowhere in sight.

This was my first ever sighting. I am 61 years of age.
