Shaft of pulsing light in Crown Point, Indiana

For approx. 20 minutes I witnessed a "shaft" of very bright pulsing light in the eastern sky. It appeared only in the clouds and it appeared to be massive.

I also noticed several other cloud-like shafts in the area that were perpendicular to the normal clouds that were present.

The normal clouds were thin fluffy type. The cloud-like shafts were solid.

I am a night person who spends a lot of time (usually from midnight to 4 am CDT), especially in the summer, watching the night sky. I have seen several UFO's (crafts) starting in the early 80's. I have seen the Northern Lights several times. I am an avid watcher of meteor showers.

I have never witnessed a light like this. I live in the flight path of O'Hare &/or Midway airports. There are always planes in the sky even in the middle of the night. There have been no planes in the sky for at least the last 30 to 40 minutes. Not sure if that is worth mentioning but I thought it was strange.

I am submitting this report and then will be watching to see if this phenomena returns.
