Metallic 3 Dimensional Rectangular Object "falling/floating" in sky.

This was shot over Atwater Elementary School this afternoon around 3:30pm. I was facing east while sitting in my car parked on Murray Ave., picking up my daughter from school. My 15 yo daughter had gone to get my 7 yo and I was watching them walk back towards the car (they were walking west, again I was facing east). Out of the corner of my eye I saw, what at first I thought for a split second was a plane about to crash. It looked as if he object - a bronze/gold metallic 3 dimensional and rectangular in shape, changed direction and was pointing perpendicular which to me looked like the fuselage of an airplane, when I realized it wasn't a plane. I watched for a second, trying to figure out what it was - at a loss, I grabbed my phone and started recording. I lost sight of the object after it fell below the tree line. It possibly could have landed into Lake Michigan just north or Atwater beach. When I initially spotted it, it looked quite a bit larger and then traveled a good distance quickly before I could get my phone out and camera ready. As far as the size of the object, I’d say it was about a 1/2 thumbs' length with my arm fully extended when I first saw it and got smaller as it continued to fall and travel away from me.

I didn't report this right away because I sent the footage to a local news team and they said it looked like space debris or debris from an airplane. I googled both of those and was not able to find anything similar to what I saw so I thought I'd see what you have to say. View the video zoomed in - the object is in the center of the frame above the tree.
