Location: Arthur, NE
Shape: Light
Duration: Ongoing
Intense white light remains stationary on the western horizon.

Really quite brilliant, looking toward the west, at some distance on the horizon, a bright light below the cloud cover... twenty degrees, or so, above the horizon. Standing in my driveway, just off the porch, and, as I say, looking west, there remains a singular, stationary, light, which is quite large. My thumb, at arm’s length, doesn’t cover it. The illumination similar to an arc light, or a welder’s torch. According to the National Weather Service, visibility is 7 miles, wind from the SE at 9 mph, temperature 10 degrees below zero, with a wind chill at 19 degrees below zero, and skies are mostly cloudy.
