A foot-wide beam of "light" emanated across the sky, after noticing and observing for ten minuets it dissipated.

At 10:20 pm EST I stepped out of my house to head to the pharmacy. I looked up at the stars as I normally do at night and noticed a foot-wide beam of what appeared to be dim light shining across the sky. I traced this beam to the moon where it seems to originate from. There was a cloud around the moon, normal enough, but when this beam passed into the cloud, it had changed color.

When the beam shone across the moon-lit cloud it turned to a black color, almost as if the light had turned to shadow. The beam ran from the moon off into the horizon, towards the constellations of the Little and Big Dipper, Ursa Minor and Major.

After watching this beam for approximately 10 minuets it, for lack of a better term, pinched off at the moon and and began to disappear from left to right.

I know this sounds crazy and isn't exactly a UFO, but this is the only site I know of where I can get some confirmation; what did I see? Did anyone else see what I did?
