Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
A "UFO" was erratically flying in the sky circling an object, when it shot a light and destroyed the object.

I was walking to the pool area, and I had bug repellent on. I sat down in a chair, and looked up. I was looking at the stars, but two stars imparticular. At first, I thought it was an airplane, but it was moving so erratically, that no airplane could move like that. I just watched it circle this one star, and then, I saw a faint yellow flash out of the circling (not circled) "UFO", and there was a clear enough flash that it lit up a portion of the sky, and the circled "star" disappeared. Then I saw a blue vortex-ish shape near the remaining "UFO", and I saw the "UFO" head toward the "vortex" and it too disappeared with the "vortex".
