Location: Lodi (near; central CA; we were traveling), CA
|We saw a huge blue light about 30,00 feet up with a beam of ligh coming out from underneath it that reached all the way to the ground.
We were travelling south on US 99. I was driving with my two sons and wife. My 15 year old son told me there was something in the sky that looked strange to him.
I pulled to the side of the road. I looked over and saw what appeared to be a huge blueish light about 30,000 feet above the ground hovering stationary. What was more odd to me than the light was the fact that emanating from underneath the object was a beam of light that went all the way to the ground. I have spent time in airplane cockpits so I am sure I got the altitude pretty close.
Anyway, I know of no light posessed by Man that can travel such a distance without dissipating.
At this point, I told the kids--the other boy was twelve--to GET THE CAMERA. During this time my wife was was just looking at it with a confused look with her mouth sort of agape. We were all a little bit frightened. We couldn't produce a camera in time unfortunately and after about 10 minutes the light or craft or whatever left the area at an impossible speed. Just zippped away.
After it left there was a streak of blue in the sky where it had been. My kids are are still amazed by it as am I. My young son told a class of students about it and they all laughed at him.
My wife won't talk about it, probably since she has a very high-profile position in the defense industry.
