After closing the window at one o'clock in the morning, I noticed a strange light moving in the sky from west to east. I left the building to explore the light further. The light was brighter than any other object in the sky, except for the moon, which was directly to the east of my location. 

Watching the light, I noticed the familiar flashing lights of an airplane that was also flying towards me from the west, but not directly. The plane quickly shortened the distance as the light passed me and was now moving east to the south of my location. The light quickly dimmed, and I stopped seeing it.

As I looked to the south, at the light, I noticed the familiar flashing lights of planes on the horizon, flying from south to north. I looked up and waited for the plane to fly by, and while I was looking, I noticed another light, this light was no brighter than any of the stars in the sky and was also moving from south to north. 

I followed the second dimmer light, and it passed right over my position, and then continued north. When I turned my head back to look at the plane, I noticed a shooting star falling somewhere behind the plane to the southwest of my position. 

It was not usually a shooting star and looked like burning magnesium, or pieces of it dripped from the main object until it completely disappeared.

Summary: As I closed a window at 1am I noticed a strange light moving in the sky from the west travelling east. I exited the building to further investigate the light; the light was brighter than any other feature in the sky apart from the moon which was directly to the east of my location. As I watched the light I noticed the familiar flashing lights of a plane also travelling toward me from the west but not directly, the plane quickly closed the distance as the light passed my position and now moved eastwards to the south of my location. The light quickly grew dimmer until I could not see it, as I was looking south at the light I noticed the familiar flashing of a planes lights in the horizon travelling from south to north. I looked up and waited for the plane to pass over and as I watched I noticed another light, this light was no brighter than any of the stars in the sky and was also travelling from south to north. I followed the second dimmer light and it passed directly over my position and then continued to travel northwards, as I turned my head back to look at the plane I noticed a shooting star fall somewhere behind the plane to the southwest of my position. It was not a usually shooting star and appeared like magnesium burning, or bits of it dripped of the main object until it completely disappeared.
