|cone of light in sky at height of air traffic
Driving westward towards Lake Champlain from Cornwall to Shoreham at 7:52 pm, I saw a cone of light in the sky approximately at the same level I had just seen an airplane. It was very bright at the top and then was a bit more hazy towards the bottom. It lasted less than 30 seconds, as I came around a bend in the road, it was gone. The bottom of the cone was hazy and sort of "melted" into the sky. The object that the light was coming from was not moving, seemed stationary. It was like an enormous lampshade in appearance.....
