Random sighting over W. Los Angeles at midnight

At midnight precisely I witnessed what I initially believed to be a shooting star based off of the high trajectory and brightness. I quickly realized the shiny, silver tear drop shape was in fact descending at a rapid rate over West Los Angeles. I witnessed this event over the course of approximately 4-7 seconds on a balcony with a view of town standing beside my dog and when the object got within eye-sight after descending quickly I lost it or if you prefer, it vanished for lack of better explanation. I wish this was a hoax, but it isn't and I'm just hoping it's a classic 'downed weather balloon'.
