I saw my second UFO ever shooting down to the ground and basically vanish or sink into the ground somehow.

The second UFO I've ever seen was a weird object that was witnessed by not only myself, but my cousin as well. It was still somewhat light out but getting darker by the minute. My cousin was driving and I was sitting in the passenger seat, dully gazing not out of my window, but rather the reflections of the lights of a store we were passing that was reflecting off my window. This part is kind of ironic and amusing as, still looking at the reflections of the lights, I said to my cousin, "Wow, for a split second, those lights looked like a.." Now, the amusing and ironic part is that had I finished my sentence, I'd have said, "Wow, for a split second, those lights looked like a UFO." That's because the reflection of the lights from the store we were passing did look like a large ship, although after that split second when I realized that it was in fact, just the reflection of the store lights, something shot down from the sky.

We saw it outside through the front of the car, and the sighting caught me off guard and I didn't even finish talking. This was a light or orb-like object, made of a kind of LED-like light with a blueish tint; however, it was so fast, that the sighting itself was only for a split second. It was somewhat funny actually, because my cousin asked if I saw that and I remember saying something along the lines of, “I'm not the only one who saw that? Good!” Besides it just being a light orb, the sighting played out like this: just as I was about to finish my sentence, my shock and surprise of the UFO made me hush up and my cousin and I watched as an LED-like ball of light – a large ball or orb mind you – randomly came out of the sky seemingly from nowhere, but instead of like the first UFO where it just kind of flickered in and out from nowhere, this one came flying from overhead, and it fell or shot down maybe three-hundred yards away from us and “vanished” before it hit the ground. I put vanish in quotes because there was a solid concrete gate or fence blocking our view from the ground where it would have crashed, but because we couldn't see, we truly don't know what happened to this object; if it had been any other object such as a plane, helicopter, jet or anything else, we were close enough to not only hear it crash but to see any flames or an explosion, but we saw nor heard any explosion or flames. On top of that, planes! , helicopters and jets don't just show up out of nowhere, aren't shaped like an orb or large circle, are not that fast as this thing was – even if they were falling to the ground! – and aren't made entirely of light. If it had been a shooting star, it would have had a tail, it wouldn't have looked like it was made of LED light, it would not have come out of nowhere, and one of that size and magnitude and one falling/crashing that close to us, would have had serious even fatal affects on my cousin and I, as in once again, we would have heard and seen an explosion and maybe would have even died from it. That is why we think this thing either must have vanished right before it hit the ground, or somehow literally went into the ground.
