Characteristics: The object left a trail, The object landed
Bright light hovering still for several minutes, then suddenly moving vertically to the ground.

My daughter and I saw a UFO (her first ever!). I was driving, she was watching a very bright light she though was a star, which was just still in the sky for a good few minutes (not getting bigger or smaller), and then it dropped straight down to the ground, too fast for a drone (and too bright) and too slow and vertical for a meteor. An extremely bright white light. I was getting lost at that moment (trying to take a short cut which didn't work out!) but when I got home I checked where we were on Google Maps. We were in the suburb of Berrinba and the ufo was in the South West direction of Brisbane. It looked to be about at least 5 telegraph poles high, but it was hard to say how far away it was. It was a very bright cool light, as bright as a welder's arc, but it didn't really light up the rest of the sky around it.
