Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
Dense , vertical, angular column of white light shines down in to my yard at 3:42 a.m. 3/28/01.

I did not see the craft. I had let my beagle out in the back yard to go to the bathroom. It was cold so I closed the sliding glass door and cupped my hands and put my face againest the glass so I could see her in the yard. It was dark, no moonlight,just a stray of light from the street lights from the front of the house. I lost site of the dog and was straining to see when a hot white vertical column of light shone down into the yard over our two empty garden spots. The light shone in a very angular way. First more square and then it elongated as it moved towards me and the house. So now it looks like a wall of white light as it expands towards me, almost like a door sliding open, and then it stops about 15 feet from the house and the back or the light moves forward and it becomes a column of light again, and then it is gone. This all happened in 1-3 seconds. My dog did not react to the light-I don't know if she saw it. The light was intensely white but did not shine outside it's boundaries and was as tall has I could see. You could not see through it. It moved very quickly and was gone. Afterwards, as I tried to make it all logical, I thought it must be the coast guard helicopter. But as I slid open the door and stepped out to look up -I realized at the same time that I heard not a sound from anything. Not a copter, not a plane. It immediately frightend me and I stepped back in the house. But I was still trying to work it out. I knew that a street light on the street behind us shone on and off every half a minute or so. I waited for it to come on and could not get the same effect-- I fogged up the glass door-several times- could not get the same effect when the street light came on. After this I woke my husband up and told him what had happened because it was so surreal. I never did see or try to see a craft after I became frightened.
