Duration:10 mins
light beams and light rays at 4:45 am

i was heading north on rt 31 into crystal lake at about 4:45am. i looked to my left and saw beams of white light coming from the sky to the ground. the best way to describe what i saw would be like bright white search lights they use for a grand opening only if they were in the sky pointing straight down and not moving. there were about 10 light beams i saw they looked to be over an area that had just houses. there was one light that flashed a few times as i was watching it looked like lightning only the way it flashed and the color but it stayed a beam. also i saw what looked like when the sky is cloudy and the sun breaks thru and you see the rays of sun come down but it didnt go allthe the way down. it really looked there were light sources in the clouds that caused the rays cause i saw the ray go down and up from the clouds. i am not alone in seeing this event i was on my way to work when i say it. when i got into work 2 guys came up to me and asked if i saw the lights also. i said yes and we all saw the same thing pretty much but we came different ways to work. so as the day went on i talked to a bunch more guys at work and i found almost 20 different people coming from different directions that all saw pretty much the same thing and i know there is more this was very bright and alot of people were on the way to work. its should be with in radar range from a small airport
