Summary : A bright light in the shy that seem like chopper's light however without any sound or movement. The light disappeared into the sky after about two minutes.

Back in 1990, I was going home around 11:00 P.M. and witnessed a police car stopping a car while I was waiting for a signal light to turn green. As I passed the police car, I noticed a bright light above the police car at 60 degree angle and coming from a western direction. At first, I though it was a police chopper serving as a back up to the police car. However, after looking at it for a couple of seconds I did not notice any characterisitcs of a chopper. In other words, the police chopper was not doing its typical circular patterns that is common to see when looking at a cop chopper, and it was not shining it's strong bright light on any thing on the ground. A block later I got home and got out of my Jeep to find two neighbors looking at the object. However, minutes later the bright light disappeared into the night sky. Although, at the time I was a college student and it was a Saturday night, I was not drunk or had any to drink that night. I was sober and total!ly awake.
