Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Bright object fell from sky for 2-3 seconds, disappeared for 1 sec, then reappeared and fell 2-3 more sec.

I am a 44 year old wife and mother. I work in the public school system, and I was getting in to our family van to go into town for groceries... When all of a sudden I saw a light object, toward the North, coming straight down (it looked sort of like a falling star) and after 2 to 3 seconds, it completely disappeared.

Then, one second later it reappeared closer to the ground, for another 2 to 3 seconds. Then it disappeared completely.

It was extremely brilliant, and seemed closer that the typical shooting star.

WOW, it was amazing!!!

It happened at exactly 7:00 pm EST (I looked at my watch immediately, and it had only been dark for a short time outside, and was still super bright.

Thank you!

My daughter was with me when it happened, and she was turned away from it, so did not see it. However, she can certainly back up my excitement and rambling on and on about what I had just seen, and what she had just missed.
