Characteristics: The object left a trail
Vertical Falling Object disappears in a flash 100 ft above ground near Boat Harbor in Honolulu Hawaii.

ALA WAI HARBOR xxxx Ala Moana Blvd. Honolulu Hawaii Sitting on the bed of my truck with my friend at his boat slip. Two other neighboring men were hanging out on their boat. We all looked up and saw something falling vertically fast, but no flames or fire like a meteor. Object had a com trail. Object fell right behind one of the major hotel buildings on Ala Moana Blvd when it flashed twice about 100 ft above ground. This flash seemed to be a double flash and very bright blue/white lit up the sky. No sound of impact or crowd craziness occurred. We all looked at one another and asked if we all saw the same thing. There were no sounds when the object flashed. The object was grey metallic like naval ships. Must of been 20'w x 40'h x 40'l approx. in size. I saw com trail was more vapor-like than smoke; almost like moisture or steam. It disappeared quick in 10 seconds.

The flash was amazing. Haven't seen colors of blue like that in lightning. The object had structure but not like an airplane falling downward. It was more squared with a noticeable corner extending off to one side. The travel distance downward was five times that of the height of the Hotel next to the Harbor.

I know people may have sen it who were near the street but who looks directly upward that fast. Three seconds from trail to flash and 5-10 seconds of vapor trail evaporating. Cars below would have missed it since it was directly above. Cars in traffic must have seen it flash. I think our position at the harbor was the best vantage point to see the object falling vertically. It was hard not to notice something that big on a vertical fall.

My initial response was a falling star burning up, but the grey shape of the object didn't fit in my mind as a non-burning falling star. So I googled this site to write it all down and let it go.
