Halloween light falling straight down in the sky.

My brother and I were taking his son around the streets for Hallowe'en . We stopped cause the child was at a door. We were looking down the street and we saw in the sky, a star - or so we thought. It appeared to be a shooting star heading SW, but it stopped dead in the sky and then just started falling straight down. The reason why this was so strange to us was because it stopped and went in an exact straight line down into the horizan till we couldn't see it cause of trees - it wasn't a fast fall either. We stood there for what seems like 30 secs watching this thing fall. I'm surprised not more people noticed it was so weird to see something falling straight down. We looked at each other and commented on how weird it was. He is a huge skeptic yet believed this was something out of the norm. This event has bothered me ever since, so I came on the internet to look up UFOs and sure enough I found this site. And I notice there were other weird sightings on Halloween. Could they be related? I never told anyone this story but I've seen the same thing about 12 years ago, looking out the window one night. I run down to tell my mother who thought I was kidding.. The next morning she ran to my room saying that the news had reporting several UFO sightings from all over - that night.
