|Floating light with cone followed by low bass rumbling sound with a different light.
I was in the neighborhood, hanging out late night with a friend. We were sitting at a bench in the neighborhood. I walked towards his car, when I noticed a light about 350-400 feet in the air above the tree line to the East. It looked like a star. Sort of yellow. From the yellow light was this funnel of light (sort of a cone) that was a sort of orange brown extending at a 5 o clock direction from the light. Inside the cone were three blinking white lights that alternated randomly. The blinking lights were spaced out evenly long ways inside the cone. My friend and I were perplexed, staring at this light, because we'd never seen something airborne act in that sort of fashion.
After staring at the light for what seemed like 2 minutes (it could have been longer) the blinking dots stopped. Then the cone started to slightly disappear. Once it was gone, the light began to also fade away. Also forgot to mention that I was a sort of thin smoke pillar extend from the bottom of the cone to about halfway to the ground. Never touching the ground. Or even reaching the trees. The smoke went away first, then the cone, then the light.
After that about 1 minute later, I heard and felt a low low rumble. Like very distant boulders falling from a cliff. And then over the course of the next 30 seconds the rumble grew louder and more intense. Parallel to the sound was a light eminating from past the tree line. I could see the atmosphere grow with light. I felt as though a nuclear bomb had dropped and the blast wave was imminent. The low hum/rumble was extremely frightening. I honestly thought I was going to die. After 30 seconds the sound stopped instantly. And the light faded.
Something else to mention, I don't know if this is relevant, but there's a retention pond in the neighborhood. Inside the pond were frogs. Immediately after the rumbling light, the frogs all started to yip and make noise as a group. That lasted for another minute or two.
