|Sudden white light appearing at night at top of the sky and plummeting towards earth disappearing while plummeting.
My wife was driving home and I was in the passenger seat. Stopped at the front of a red light with no cars behind us we were both quiet not saying anything. Then all of the sudden a bright white light appeared at the top of the atmosphere and seemed to plummet very fast towards earth, leaving a light trail for the split second that the light was visible. We only seen the light trail for a very short distance as the light appeared from nothing then trailed very fast downwards for a half a second before disappearing from sight.
Judging from the distance we were from the light the light seemed like it was fairly large lit up area. The skys were clear with some stars visible. I commented something along the lines of "what the heck!? did you see that?" and my wife just as shocked as me agreed that she had seen the light as well.
My assumptions would be that it was a meteorite, but it could of been anything.
