It seemed to emanate from a single point and looked like it was producing a ring of radiation across the sky west to east.

I noticed it with my girlfriend and my mother at about 2:15 AM on Saturday, June 18th. It looked like it was in orbit or in a quasi orbit at a distance you might see a satellite at. It started in the western half of the sky moving East. At first it looked vaguely like a diffuse glowing cloud seemingly the size of the moon or a bit larger in apparent size. Then it began to take shape as what looked like a point of light producing some kind of beam of light or other kind of radiation pointed towards the earth. It looked as if the point of light produced ionized atmosphere below it in a roughly spherical cloud shape and below that was a ring of what looked like glowing ionized atmosphere. As it moved from west to east it grew in size and became more diffuse looking and continued to be oriented towards the earth as it moved through the sky. Eventually being almost invisible to the naked eye and many many times larger than it started out as. Ultimately fading completely away. I canít wrap my head around it.
