Brilliant wide well defined beam of light from an invisible source that withdrew slowly and disappeared.

This is a report on what I believe is a UFO sighting. It was shortly after dusk. It was dark but not yet pitch black. I was driving past the primary power distribution site for the local hydro power facility near Cornwall, Ontario, Canada. The facility is on the high ground about a mile from the road.

I noticed a bright shaft of light above this facility. I thought at first it might be a helicopter inspecting the transformers. The light was extremely bright and well defined. There was no sound.

I then realized that it was too wide for a normal spotlight - possible 100 feet wide.

The light then acted in a manner not possible with our technology. Still bright with well defined boundaries it began to slowly withdraw upward. The object that it was withdrawing into was not visible.

Light in our technology is either on or off. A light beam as we know it cannot slowly withdraw. The light boundaries were too well defined to be a natural phenomenon. For this reason I believe I was witnessing a paranormal event.

My wife also witnessed this sighting.
