I'm not sure of the time of the event. There were 4 of us who saw it. We were eating dinner on our patio at night. I looked up and saw what looked like a spot light shining down from the sky through a mist or a cloud. I pointed it out. First reaction, rational, was that it was a helicopter. We heard no sound of a helicopter at all, and the light seemed to high up to be a helicopter, especially given the fact that it seemed to be emanating from a cloud. About 20 seconds later, the light seemed to rise straight up, getting enveloped in the cloud. I say this because the light became diffused as if in a cloud of mist. Eventually it dimmed and was no longer visible.
