Duration:approx: 20 minutes
Beam of light comes from the sky.

A fellow called me on the toll free line to tell me that he and 7 other witnesses observed a beam of light which came down from the night sky. The light was seen from the witnesses location which was in the southwest part of Airdrie, the beam of light was in the northwest part of the sky. Due to homes being in the witnesses line of sight, they were not able to see if the beam actual hit the ground. I asked the witness a few questions about what this beam of light looked like. He said it came straight down, not on any angles nor were there bends in the light. The fellow told me that it had an orange glow to it. The amazing thing is that this beam of light sat in one place for approx: 20 minutes, enough time that some of the witnesses ran in to telephone other friends and family members so they could go out to see this strange event. I also asked if the beam of light lit up any of the area, the witness said no, due to obstacles in their way.

No sound was heard, plus the beam was rather wide, not just a thin beam of light. He said it was moderately cloudy as I wanted to know if any type of object was seen in the area where the light originated from. No object was noted. No aircraft were visible at the time of the sighting flying through this airspace. I wondered if this may have been a helicopter, but again not a sound was heard coming from the area and I am sure the witnesses, and the others you went out to watch this would have heard the sound if it had been some type of normal aircraft.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
