Location: Columbia, MO, USA

Shape: Light
Characteristics: Emitted other objects

Star-like light with trail descended in NW night sky to the west and disappeared after 3-5 seconds.

Travelling northbound on Highway 63 at northern Columbia (Missouri) city limits, there was a light like a star in the northwest night sky at about 35-40 degrees elevation moving quickly downward from right to left. Trailing from the light was what appeared to be sparks or dots of light floating away behind the light. There were approximately 4-6 total forming and streaming behind. As the light descended for what may be 3-5 seconds, the light and the trailing tail of lights coming from it disappeared.

It appeared much like what we were told as kids what a shooting star looks like.
