Bright red light in the night sky.Sometime later separate fluorescent white light falls from the sky to the ground.

I was sitting on my terrace when I saw a bright red light in the sky.At first I thought it was an aeroplane but I noticed that it didn't have any other color lights nor did it seem to move.I have no idea how high it was but judging by the planes that were on their way to land at San Diego's airport my guess is a couple of thousand meters.I told my husband to come outside and look at the red light,he thought it might be a balloon(the flame that is) but it didn't look like fire to me.Then it just died down and I couldn't see it anymore.We went inside and about 20 min.later my husband said wow something just fell out of the first I thought he was pulling my leg, but he wasn't.He said he saw a huge white fluorescent light fall from the sky behind some trees that are on the adjacent property.I don't know if the two incidents are related or what the were? but I thought I'd report them anyway.
