Strange star-like object emits lights from sky.

On the evening of March 15, 2002 as the moon sat in the western sky, my husband and I noticed what looked like a star just beneath the moon. Maybe a little to the right. At first we assumed it was a star but not until it started to appear brighter and brighter. Then it casted a beam (like a huge spotlight) at first straight ahead then it slowly beamed downward. As the light slowly disappeared what seemed to be clouds started taking shape. The light was completely gone and the clouds started to fade very slowly.

My husband and I had pulled over hoping someone had witnessed what we just saw unfortunately we were the only ones on the road. We were hoping someone other than in our vicinity had witnessed this event. We had never seen anything like it before. I mean it couldn't have been an aircraft of any kind much less a missil. What kind of aircraft or missile would make a very bright light? Although it scared us, it was in a way made a beaufiyl scenery.

I knew that if this was reported there would be some kind of excuse or cover up for it. Not until a few years later I became aware of this website and to my surprise there were similar sightings reported. So I decided to report the incident.
