Light in dissolving smoke plume.

ON MARCH 2 2011 ON MY WAY TO WORK AT APPROXIMATELY 0540 I SAW A LARGE PLUME OF WHITE SMOKE ON THE HORIZON, I AM IN THE MILITARY THEREFOR I CANNOT RELEASE MY NAME BUT THE SIGHTING OCCURRED ON EAST MIRAMAR IN SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA. THE WHITE PLUME SEEMED LIKE A FIRE SMOKE PLUME ONLY NEATER, THEN MY MIND GOT QUICKLY CHANGED WHEN I SAW A SMALL BALL OF LIGHT COME UP FROM BEHIND THE MOUNTAIN AND UP THROUGH THE PLUME. THE "SMOKE" THEN BEGAN TO FOLLOW THE LIGHT AS IT GREW LARGER AND BEGAN COMING TOWARD ME AND LOOKED AS IF IT STARTED TO SPIRAL. IN AN INSTANT THE LIGHT COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED AND THE SMOKE SEEMED TO DISSOLVE QUICKLY, AS IN A MATTER OF ABOUT 5 SECONDS. LEADING ME TO BELIEVE THAT IT WAS DEFINITELY NOT SMOKE. AND I WASN'T SEEING ANYTHING OF THIS EARTH. WHAT WAS AS STRANGE WAS THAT THE RADIO THAT I WAS LISTENING TO, WENT BLANK AND ALL I HEARD WAS STATIC, I EVEN CHANGED THE STATION A COUPLE OF TIMES AND ALL OF THEM WERE STATIC. A COUPLE OF GUYS FROM WORK ALS! O TOLD ME THAT THEIR RADIO STATIONS WENT OUT FOR ABOUT 2 MINUTES.
