Spotlight orb vanishes leaving a glowing gas cloud

My name is Michael, I am a pilot working on my commercial lic. in rotorcraft. My mother in law first spotted this light to the west of our location. She then asked me what it was. I first thought it could be a helicopter but after a few seconds of observing it I knew it was not. I also knew it was not an airplane. It had a short spotlight and looked like it was pretty close to the gournd. It looked like it was 1000-2000 FT. AGL. The spotlight slowly dimmed away and then the UFO slowly vanished out into the sky looking like it travelled miles away. I've then noticed a faint turquoise trail the orb left behind. The trail started as a thin line and then expanded into a large cloud like shape. I noticed the turquoise cloud it left behind last for a minimum of 5 minutes. I did not see the turqoise glowing mist disipate.
