Location: San Luis Obispo, CA
Shape: Circle
Duration:15 minutes
A very bright beam of blue light cut across the night sky. The origin was a small circular object, as if far away, but the beam of blue light was very bright and very thin. The area of the sky at termination side of the beam glowed an eerie green, like foggy northern lights. The glowing foggy area of the sky continued to glow for 15 minutes until it gradually faded. The object in the sky moved far away, the beam stopped, and other smaller faint beams could be seen. I thought maybe it was a rocket taking off from the nearby Vandenberg AFB, but I checked their schedule and no launch. (They launch Atlas rockets a few times a year). I've seen many such launches and this was very different. And this was silent. No noise. Just a bright sharp beam of light that sliced the sky and made a large area of the sky glow green, even after the beam left. Two of us saw it. We tried to photograph but the contrast did not show up on an iPhone. Very strange. We drov! e a miles and still saw it, indicating it was far.
