Falling light then vanished

My wife in I were drawn to the sky by thousands of birds flying above our apartment in some migratory pattern. I ran to get my binoculars for a better look at the birds but when I got back outside, I immediately noticed a strange hovering light in the distance.

To the naked eye it was an indistinguishable cylindrical light that appeared to be slowly falling from the sky. Through the binoculars it had a more defined rigid shape that resembled a crescent moon with peak in its middle. It fell for a minute or so then was gone from sight. Almost immediately after it vanished a helicopter flew overhead in the direction of the sighting.

My wife and both witnessed it and agreed that it was one of the most bizarre unexplainable objects we had ever seen.
