Location: Roseville, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
A star-like object moving slowly and eminating light downward and sideways then disappearing.

What appeared to be a star-like light caught my attention on the horizon while driving west bound on highway 80 leaving Roseville. It looked as though it was shining a spotlight in a cone-like shape downward from the object, then sideways as it moved.

Suddenly the object was gone and it appeared it left behind a cloud or smoke where the light was. It was too slow to be a shooting star or a meteor. A helicopter was flying near it on the horizon giving context. It did not appear to be a plane or another helicopter.
