12/7/02 - Tear shaped white light that shot straight up out of sight.

Clear sky, starry night. The object was pointed on the top side and rounded on the bottom. Pure white light with a white tail. Went from true north from a lower altitude (30 degrees) and shot straight up overhead (90 degrees above the horizon) and disappeared within 1 and one half seconds. When it disappeared the light did not fade it simply vanised as if it went into a black tunnel. The background was trees. We live about nine miles south of Sioux Falls, SD.
