Location: Tallahassee, FL
Shape: Light
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
Large bright white light with a blue tail-roundish shaped but elongated. Dropping vertically from the sky.

My 3 children & I were driving home on Woodville Hwy when my son and I seen a large d ball of light dropping like a rock from the sky. We watched it descend in less than a minute. The best way to describe the shape is to say it looked like a ghost made out of sheet & flying upside down. It was very bright and it had a light blue hue at the tail of it. It was not moving diagnoly but vertically-straight down. I called my mother(this was all within 15 minutes of spotting the object) when we reached home to tell her about it and while she was on the phone with me she also seen what she said was something as bright as the moon with a bluish hue and very large and solid falling by the woods off of Hwy 20. She was freaking out and called my dad outside but he missed it by a second. She also said that it was falling straight down like it was very heavy. You can reach Hwy 20 by taking Hwy 267 from where I was driving on Woodville Hwy. Is it possible something fell in the stretch of woods on hwy 267? My husband made an inquiry to the Wakulla Sheriff's department, however nothing had been reported. I am a very skeptical and would like to know if anyone else see something falling from the sky that night. None of us that witnessed this object heardany sounds. Can anyone explain?
