Duration:5 seconds
Dark sky, Cylinder with light and clouds in it swirling around.

December 12, 2016. This happened on the evening of June 12th or the 13th of 2016.

I was walking up my outside stairs headed south, my home blocks the west side area until I am all the way up the stairs. this was in the evening time I dont know the time, but it was dark.

I was in about the middle of the stairs, I turned up and was facing south, suddenly I saw what to me was a huge cylinder of light with white like clouds whirling around in it as it came across the sky it was light in it like day and inside swirilling fast. I say the cylinder was about a 50 degree angle when it came from the West, I never saw the tail end. what puzzles me the most was that the light came across like an unfolding light, it had an end to the light in the front, I never saw the end of a flashlights that was pointed in the sky, it shot across so fast, maybe I saw it for about 4 to 5 seconds, it had stopped and it was just there, then in the blink of an eye the lights just closed and dissapered, dark sky and nothing more. it was gone and dark again.

I estimated that the cylinder (I call it a cylinder because it was round ) to be maybe a mile away, but in my mind it was closer than that, not really sure.

I would say for comparison the cylinder was about as wide and as round as a Train engine or a box car from a train., but it was round. from the ground level I was at.
