Location: Honolulu, HI
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
A light appeared within a stationary cloud, finally going out and the cloud dissipated rapidly.

I have two floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedroom that I keep the curtains pulled backto enjoy the city-scape lights a night. Looking out the window while sitting in the bed about 11PM, I saw a little cloud about 1/2 - 1 mile away. It appeared to be shaped like the state of Virginia.... With the Spring winds blowing from the Northeast, oddly it was completly still about 100 - 200 ft higher than I am on the 30th floor. It was located just South of Punchbowl crater, out over the city. After I noticed it wasn't moving in the winds, I began to study its shape from the reflected light of the city streets below......then a light appeared in the cloud, like you see when an airplane is letting down thru clouds at night with the landing light on. First the light was fuzzy inside the cloud then, the light became a bright peachy-orange color... like it broke out of the cloud... I was trying to adjust my eyes to make sure it really wasn't a plane… The light became! clear and brighter, in a full circle/ball shape, about center of the cloud. It was a stable light, not flickering like a burning flare appears. Then the round light went back into the cloud with about half the round shape visible/hanging out of bottom of the cloud, bright on the bottom and diffused in the cloud. Suddenly the light just went out. From the lights of the city, the little cloud was still visible with a black, perfectly round hole in it. The little cloud didn't just drift off, it quickly faded away without moving.... odd, considering the strong, gusty wind that night. I wish I had taken a picture/video, but I was fixed on the activity!!!
