a large shaft of blue light that appeared more or less perpendicular to the horizon

i was driving due east on us 33 when i saw up in the sky in front of me what looked like a flash. almost immediately after that i witnessed the appearance of a massive column of blue light. it resembled a searchlight only much larger. it extended from the ground to past the top of the windshield. it seemed to be canted slightly counterclockwise from per- pendicular and appeared to be coming toward my position somewhat. my approximate position was 10 miles east of south bend and 4 miles south of Interstate 80/90. Weather condition was approx30degF with slight overcast. I heard no noise as if this might be a freak lightning phenomenon. It really made the hairs stand up. yikes!
