Grey Object hovers over house in Covina, surrounds observer with a beam of light then bright blue shape remains in sky.

The following was reported to me by my brother (extended family - he and his wife are my "brother and sister". Friday (July 7, 2000), around 9:30 p.m., my brother , who lives in Covina, CA, was taking out trash. As he walked back towards the house, he noticed something moving towards the house. within seconds, an object hovered over his house. He said it was larger than a helicopter, had no visible propellers, etc., was grey, had some blue lights. No wind nor sound came from the object. A beam of white light suddenly shone on him. He was frightened. He called his wife but she did not hear him so he ran into the house to get her. By the time they both came outside, the object appeared to be miles high. All that was visible was a bright blue oval shape cloudy image. It remained there for a long while then disappeared. My brother reported this to me this morning. His wife confirmed that she was a bright blue oval shape against the dark sky and that it remained there for a long while. She said that my brother was shaking when he came in to get her. My brother is convinced the object that hovered over his house was a UFO; as may be expected, he is frightened. This afternoon, I contacted my son-in-law, who told me that my daughter had seen a bright white object in the sky on the same evening (in Monrovia, CA, around the same time). My daughter confirmed this and said the large, bright light did not move and that it emitted a beam. She and her friend had joked that it was a UFO (Neither believes in UFOs - My son-in-law and I do). My grandson heard my conversation and he said that his friend Andy (who lives in El Monte, CA) had seen a light in the sky on Friday. He had told my grandson and some friends (at a slmber party) about the large flash he and his grandmother had seen and he said that,later, his grandmother him told she had heard it was a missle exploding. I contacted Andy, who said his grandma (aa very religious person and non-UFO believer) had seen it. I spoke with her and she confirmed seeing a large white light, surrounded by bluish cloud/mist on the same night at the same time. She said at first she thought it might be a religious experience (so had my brother) but then noted that this light just remained there and then there was a large white flash. She said that it was reported on tv that something had gone wrong with a missle and it had been exploded. All of the above was related to me at different times by different individuals who had not been in contact with each other. I can testify to the honesty of the individuals who saw the object/light. None believed in UFOs but are now believing that there are visitors out there.
