Heavy Blue Light beamed down and chased family in house, simular to 50 foot wide search light.

At 19:55 hour 10-02-98 a heavy blue light beam traveled straight down from the sky to cover the back patio, where my son and and wife were. the sudden silent heavy blue light scared them as it appeared out of no where. this light was a strange light as it did not cast any shadows but was so bright that it hurt their eyes. They both ran into the house an called me to help them! I grab a weapon and headed for the back yard where I found nothing but a semi cloudy night with a hazy moon and some bright stars showing through them.. They were both shaking with fear and it took several hours of my telling them it was just a reflection of the light from a police car going by. But I know police spot lights don't come from the sky and are not a heavy florescent blue that casts no shadows. This was just a strange experience that I can not really explain so I thought it might be worth reporting to you.
