Duration:15 minutes
I was standing near the corner of Washington and Oak St in Minneapolis, MN, and noticed a long perfectly straight beam of like about 50m long; just above the bottom of the cloud cover. There happened to be a spotlight from a local business circling the night sky and whenever the spotlight passed across the beam of light there was, what looked like, a reflected pulse of light bouncing off perpendicular to the light beam.

See linked video, this happens at about the 10 second mark (sorry for the background noise, I was waiting at the bus stop).

I watched this for a good 10 mins and the object didn't move, and each time the spotlight passed over it I saw the reflected light.
