National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report

Location: El Dorado, KS
Shape: Light
Duration: 3 sec.
A beam of RED light came out of the clouds, like a flashlight beam in the fog, only very bright and large beam.

I was driving south bound on toll road I35 in Kansas looking a little to the left side of the interstate at milemarker 84.5 when I observed the beam of light project from above the clouds toward the ground. From my vantage point I would guess the top of the beam to be approx. 100 ft. and the bottom to be at least 500 ft. across. It lasted for not more than 3 seconds maybe less. The weather was nice approx. 68 degrees, slight wind, puffy clouds, no fog, best I could tell there were no airplanes in the area I was driving.
