Very bright large light falling.

While sitting in Bethel Henshel park in east Sacramento at approximately 11:20 pm, we observed an extremely large, super bright, white light appear above the neighborhood tree line in the northeast sky. It rapidly descended in a straight vertical line until out of sight. It looked like it was falling as there was no horizontal movement at all. The whole thing lasted 2 seconds max. It did not appear to be a falling star as it was too large, too low and falling too vertically. Seconds later, a helicopter which had previously flown over the park, circled back and began flying over the area where the object had descended out of sight.
