It was a spring night and my father and I were walking around the block before going to bed. We were within sight of home to finish the walk and enjoying a nice chat. We both have an interest in UFOs, space, aliens, and engineering. My dad is a petroleum engineer and I am a mechanical engineer. My grandfather and dad’s father was an electric engineer and did work on the Apollo Project in a contractor capacity.

There was a lull in the conversation about a range of subjects which did sometimes include space and UFO type mutual interests. We were both looking up at the sky approx 70 degrees up walking southward and 20 degrees to the west when we suddenly saw something neither of us have ever seen in the sky before. The craft or object appeared like a very large (bigger than most airplanes visible in the airspace normally by a factor greater than 10) string made out of light. It remained visible for approximately 2 seconds and completely disappeared. We both said, “DID you see THAT!?” because it was such a clear and exciting thing to witness. We spent the remainder of the walk describing to each other the exact same craft/phenomena we both witnessed.

There were no negative effects of the encounter and it was just a cool thing to witness firsthand. I definitely cannot think of any “rational” explanation or mistaken identity for what we witnessed besides a hologram or advanced light craft.
