Strange light appears out of thin air and shoots down into earth, but not before disappearing again.

Tuesday night, I was driving home from school on Van Buren blvd and all of a sudden a light appeared in the sky--out of nowhere and very low to the horizon. It looked like a star appeared out of the of the sky which was not there before.

As soon as it appeared it stopped for a second as if it was completely still, then it proceeded to shoot down towards the Earth with extreme speed and disappeared into thin air before it 'hit'.

What made this stranger was that shooting stars are normally above you and not super low like that. It was suddenly there then suddenly not.
