Cigar shaped ufo seen falling to earth ion Oakland

it was 1/8/15 at 0715 hrs in the morning. I was having a cigarette scanning the sky looking in the eastern sky. I saw something at about 45 degree in the falling towards earth at a very sharp angle, like if it was the hands of a clock, it would be facing seven o clock. It was traveling incredibly slow. So slow, that I didn't know whether this was a contrail from an earlier plane or whether it was moving. I had to use the telephone wire as a reference marker to make sure it was moving.

Once I realized it wasn't a contrail, a plane flew near it, on its own trajectory, giving me an immediate reference to the movement of planes. As it started falling past the tree limbs it did something really funny. It seemed to have compressed, almost like an accordion into itself and seemed just hover in the sky. Watching this sent chills down my spine because it's movement was one I have never encountered in my life. It wasn't a meteor because the speed was too slow. Nothing could just fall from the sky at the rate it was falling. The velocity was just too slow.

And it wasn't a plane.

I took a video, buts it's poor in quality, but I did take a few photos that didn't turn out so badly. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in seeing them.
