Location: Conroe, TX
Shape: Light
Duration:7 seconds
Fast point of light (no tail) decending rapidly towards the earth at a down angle of ~45 degrees of 45 degrees

It's 8:53 pm CST, traveling north on Interstate 45 just before the exit for FM 1488 (road), My spouse and I observed a point of light @ NNW enter our field of vision available from within the car (top of the windshield). The object rapidly decended from a approx 8000 ft to below the treetops in a perfect (not parabalic) line 45 degrees downward, appearing to head NE. The object maintained its albeit small (point of light) shape for the duration of observation. The light was white, it had no visible tail, no sparks, suggesting it wasn't a meteor. Distance to object is uncertain due to small size of light.
