Shape: Light
Duration:45 seconds
Bright light fell from the sky.

I had gone outside with my boyfriend to have a smoke and look at the stars on a clear night as we usually do.

We had quickly noticed a satellite, about 5 planes flying around some higher then others (which I found strange that there was so many planes in just that one section of the sky) and then there was this very bright light in the sky almost like a really big star, just a bright white light no color, flashing, sound or any visible form. It wasn't twinkling or moving but it stood out from all the other stars out that night like it didn't fit in.

All of the sudden, about 30-45 seconds of us noticing it, it dropped straight down like it was landing possibly in the distance, there was no trail that came off of it no sound, no shake from impact as if it was a crash. Just a bright big star that fell from the sky in a very odd way.
