Reported: 12/30/2016 2:32:53 PM 14:32
Posted: 12/30/2016
Location: Corning/Pocahontas (between), AR
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:10-15 seconds
A large smoke like pillar of light appeared right before six AM, it lit up the entire area for about 10-15 seconds, and then vanished.

I was driving from my town of Corning, Arkansas, towards Pocahontas, Arkansas, at about between 5:30-5:45AM.

I was heading towards work and just ahead of me, suddenly appeared a smoke-like pillar of light! I'm not sure how far away exactly it was, but it was probably about the width of a 4 way road.

It appeared so bright that the entire countryside around it was semi-visible when before then it wasn't since it was so early in the morning and dark!

I watched it for about ten seconds, then as I grabbed my phone to take a picture it vanished! Never re-appearing though I kept my eye out for it.

It was really eerie!
