downward descent was something we have never seen...
Tacoma, Washington - 01-01-16
We were driving from Seattle to Tacoma. There are lots of planes. I looked up and saw what I thought was a plane light materialize in the horizon.
It then took a swift descent at about 45 degrees towards the ground.
It lasted about 5 to 7 seconds and then it just disappeared. I have seen meteors, space debris, satellites, planes, etc. but this was in the same air space as another plane that was flying a couple miles to the east of it.
My passenger looked up at the last second and thought he saw a red tail on it. I saw it from beginning to end but did not see the red tail.
We both agreed that it was in the air space and the downward descent was something we have never seen. It wasn't fast enough for a meteor, and it had no colors or streaks for space debris.
I am making this report in case someone else has had an experience similar to this.
