Saw green lasers appear to fan from clouds and rapidly sweep over the north face of Candy Mountain in West Richland, WA.

Summer of 2004 or 2005 between 11 and midnight. I was 17 or 18 and friend was one year younger than me. Both males. I was driving us to my home which was only a few miles away. There was light cloud cover and we see coming from the sky green lasers that appear to be in a triangular or fan shape, with an origin point coming in the sky. They appear to be coming from a stationary point in the sky. The length of the line in contact with the ground must have been at least 40-50 feet. They are sweeping rapidly all over the north face of Candy Mountain in West Richland, WA. Laser appears to rotate rapidly also, may have been more than one beam. I stop my car as we sit and watch the lasers for about 10 minutes. My friend jokingly turned the car off as I stared up since I was shocked at what we were seeing and he was trying to spook me more. There was no traffic around us and we heard no noise of helicopters, planes or other vehicles around us with the car off. Suddenly the lasers stopped and we drove home. We were a within a mile of base of Candy Mountain, lasers appeared to be coming from clouds higher than top of mountain. Lasers came down at 45-60 degree angle, perpendicular or near perpendicular to our view. Don't know if it was UFO but still don't know what it was.
