Falling star slows to a halt then drops slowly until it is gone

I was heading south on a residential street when I saw what looked like a falling star. The bright light came down fast, like a meteor falling to earth, then slowed tremendously to look like a helicopter landing. The direction it was in it would have been over the ocean around Oceanside/Carlsbad area.

Once the object slowed and I realized it was a craft and not a falling star I recorded it with my cell phone. It went straight down from start to finish, and once it slowed it did not change speed again.
