Shape: Light
Duration:10 sec
We were just sitting there at my brothers right after dark. When we saw what look like a light larger then any star in the sky. It appered to be moving directly north of us It was moving very slowly. Slower than any thing I've ever seen in the sky except maybe a hot air baloon.

It was traveling level at a fixed point in the sky. The light began dimming on and off for a couple of seconds then comletely turned off then just a second or two later we saw what appered to be a beam of direct light shot to the horizon from the exact point in the sky where the object would and should have been.

The light is very hard to describe. It was as strong at some points as a laser and as dim at other times as a candle

I dont know me and my ex-girlfriend talked about it all the time and we couldn't figure out what it was,

It still kinda scares me to even think about it.
