I saw something fall vertically leaving two white trails or plumes in a V-shape behind it. It fell from very high up and the trails were crystal clear – the one on the left seemed a little fainter but still very clear. No noise and it was quite small so it could have been really far away (ie the trails were only about 2.5cm long when seen against the sky). It fell steadily, quite quickly and absolutely vertically. I watched it fall for a few minutes until a building obscured my view – there was no crash or noise or flames or smoke so I don’t know if it landed or if it was indeed too far away to hear/see.
