brief expansion of a wand of light, that dissapeared as quickly as it appeared.

I spotted a UFO at 4:15 this morning right out in the back of my building while I was just stepping out to walk my dog! At first I thought it must be a shooting star but it was so different and the more I thought about it the more I realized I had just seen something that had to be a UFO. I litterally thought as I walked out of my door, " I wonder if I'll see a UFO today since I'm walking the dog by myself," and as soon as I thought it, there was this ball of light that stretched itself shortly across the sky like a rod, like a star wars light saber, and then just dissapeared in a split second. It was right there in my field of vision right when I thought maybe I'll see a UFO. The light was crisp and uniform, there was a definite point of origin, no streaking tail or breaking up, just a pure band of luminessence.
