Diagonal line of bending light seen above university from the moon on Hallow's Eve.

After joining the Halloween Dance from my previous university, I was walking through the parking lot of the university with my friend, waiting for my father to come pick me up. It was a bit chilly but no wind. No cars were out that late at night and no one was around but myself and my friend.

When we got to the middle of the parking lot, I looked up at the moon, the sky was completely clear of clouds. The moon was full. But I stood there and noticed a completely dark black diagonal line going through the middle of the moon. The line was like this: / . It didn’t change shape, shrink in size, or change in direction.

The line was moving at a very slow pace through the moon. I also noticed that this line, from the earth to the moon and from the outer rim of the moon out through the night sky, the dark line was connected to a sun-beam-like light. As the dark line moved to the right, finally completely off the moon, the dark line vanished and formed completely with the ‘light’ line. In my opinion, this object seemed to bend light.

By watching this line for 5 minutes or so, I realized that this line was very long. Possibly as if it went from the side of Earth, through the moon and continuing through the night sky to reach the other end of the Earth.

I was not the only one to see this. My friend watched with me and my mother, who was on my cell phone on loud speaker, heard me explain what we were seeing.

I don’t know about how my friend felt as we watched, but even though I was slightly cold from the weather, I felt very peaceful. As if there were no threat.
