Falling light outside of Vancouver

Driving home westbound on 119th St. It was a clear night and I noticed this bright white light in the sky ahead of me. It was difficult to judge the height of this light because I couldn't make out any object. Suddenly, the light dropped straight down out of the sky towards the ground where it disappeared (before actually reaching the ground). My mother was in a car in front of me. I called her when I got home asking if she saw anything on her way home. She described the same light to me. There was more detail in her description. She witnessed a "cluster of lights" that hung in the air, then suddenly fell towards the ground, whereupon they disappeared as well.
