Duration:10 minutes
Plume of white mist descending at a 45 degree angle, lasting 10 minutes and dissipated.

I'm in my car ready to leave Costco and and I happen to look up and see a plume of white mist- almost like a contrail, descending in a downward trajectory at a 45 degree angle. It moved fairly quick. The white mist had a very long tail. I looked for a plane but couldn't find any aircraft in the area.

I sat in my car and watched this object move very slow and deliberate. At times it seemed as if it would pause and then start moving again. The cloud cover was infrequent and what clouds there were, were wispy. I saw the object pause several times and it seemed like it slowed down. As the object descended downward the contrail- or whatever it was, seemed to decrease and the tail became smaller until it was almost indistinguishable from the object. It paused before going through a wispy cloud. I sat and waited until it came through the cloud but it never appeared again. There was no debris. One minute it was there and the next it was gone. And the contrail ceased to exist. The entire incident lasted approximately 10 minutes.
