Location: Frankfort, MI
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 30 minutes
Large flashing light extending down from sky to lake Michigan.

Clear evening very little over cast. Myself and my wife observed a large shatf of light out over lake Michigan. It looked like a very thick bolt of lightning but continued to pulse about once a second. It stayed in a genreral area moving back and forth. It extended down from the sky to the lake and was very bright kind of like a strobe light. It appeared to be thick in diameter and long given the distance out over the water. As stated it would flash about once a second and move back and forth in the same general area. It continued for about 30 minutes when it just stopped. It did not look like a lighthouse due to the length of it and the way it moved from south to north and back again. I have a brief portion on video that is being sent via mail. I did not film the entire duration unfortunately.
