Street lights went black and a strange blueish-white light came down from the sky

Myself, and my children were heading North on the Veteran’s Expressway in Tampa, approximately 3 miles south of the SR 54 exit. At approximately, 10pm we were driving in the left hand land and all of a sudden all of the street lights on the Expressway went off and a blue beam of light went across the highway.

However, the light wasn’t like normal flood light or spot light you would see. The light actually stopped in mid-air, it didn’t travel like "normal" light should.

It was the craziest thing I had ever seen and it wasn’t a normal color either--it was a strange blueish-white light.

My boys said it before I could even muster the words out of my mouth, "Is that a UFO?" he exclaimed from the rear seat.

I was in shock, I didn’t even know what to say.
