I saw the same exact thing. I was in my yard in Longswamp township. My whole family saw it. My aunt thought it was a shooting star, and I thought it was a UFO. It looked like someone was beaming a flashlight down on earth.

I saw it in Annville, PA. I was standing in my front yard looking southeast. It was a very bright light, cone-shaped. It was very cool. Had no idea what it was. My wife saw the tail end of it before it went away. Wish my kids saw it, or at least had my camera handy. I am glad we found out what it was.

I live in Palmer Township PA and my family and I seen the cone shaped bright light in the sky above our house. It was stationary it was not moving within a matter of 8 seconds the light evaporated. The government need to stop trying to cover up UFO's We have the right to know the truth.

My family was in the back yard and saw the same thing. I missed it,I was in the house a couple of minutes. My young granddaughters (6, 8 & 10)even drew pictures of exactly what you described. The other 5 were adults and not crazy. They described the cone shaped light and smoky or cloudy presence and then it just disappeared. No movement, no sound!

I was in Mallory Square, Key West, Fl. For whatever reason I looked up and saw a stationary light in the sky. HIGH UP! It was approximately 6:30 DST. It was not the orb which was interesting but a smaller light beneath it. Moving from 5 to 7 o'clock. It was not a flash. It was moving freely... a light of itself. I and many others observed this for more than 5 minutes.

My family and I were at the park in Albuquerque, NM a little before sunset and saw the cone shaped light high in the North-eastern sky. It looked to be completely stationary for about 15-20 minutes. As the sun set it turned from white to a reddish hue, as if it was reflecting the setting sun, then disappeared as the sun set completely. Several others in the park were pointing to it and asking if anyone knew what it was.

Could these be the same lights our family saw at ~6:30 pm on Sunday 21 Sept. here in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates? We are eight hours ahead of the east coast in the US and we saw exactly what you are describing at the above mentioned time all the way over here in the Middle East.

Uh, this here was the Biaviians coming to visit us as they have done for sometime now. They are a peaceful culture who only wish to help us, I have been on thier ship many times since 1953. My book tells all about my experiences with the many journeys I have taken with them, none the less, our government has been covering up the fact that we are being visited by aliens from other planets, and they have been for years.

Doesn't anyone think it is weird that NASA is playing god?
Why are we spending money to mess with weather conditions? Anyone!?

What better weapon is there than to be able to alter an enviorment anywhere in the world. Using cold or excessive heat to kill crops and starve a nation out. Massive amounts of rain to flood an area, creating an overcast condition so aircraft cannot be seen to be shot down. Its the ultimate weapon against a nation that is technology deficent. Had the germans been able to do this against the Russians, they may have taken over Russia and changed the course of history.

I was about to go in my friends car outside of the city of Reading when he looked up "look at that!" and we all saw a ray of light, almost like it was a flash light pointing down at earth, moving back and forth, then just vanished.
