Again, as to the report of an eyewitness statement on the site "UFO Emits Light Beam Near Tyrone, PA", I have no clue as to what this was. This took place 14 kilometres from the City, 2 kilometres from the major international airport. I am NOT a nutjob and I have a life.

I had dropped my cousin back off at his house by the beach after a dinner party, approx.3am.

As he was unlocking the door and turning off the alarm I had gone around to the back of the building to empty a somewhat full bladder into the sand dunes.

As I looked up at the stars (as you do) there appeared to be oval shaped glowing ball of gas within a kilometre away. It appeared to be about 100 metres across ( hard to tell ) and was very bright red/orange colour, about half a kilometre off the ground.

At this stage I had blinked several times and looked from the sky to the ground and back again to check my eyesight. When I realised that it was actually there I yelled to my cousin to come and have a look outside. When he did, I directed his attention upward to which he yelled at the top of his voice "What the hell is that?" Within about one minute of us standing there watching this solidly defined shape, it emitted a very thin beam of light straight down from the middle of the object to the ground, (the focal point of the beam at this time was obscured to us by the sand dunes). There was no sound at all.

My cousin, gamer than I, scrambled up the sand dunes to see where the light beam was going/coming from? Originally we thought the beam was coming from ground. By the time my cousin had beckoned me up onto the dunes I noticed that the light was coming from the shape overhead as it ended on the beach sand with no accountable light source in sight.

As we watched this oddly for about five minutes, the beam of light stopped abruptly and the once defined ball of gaseous orange/reddish thing slowly over a period of about thirty seconds, dissipated from sight.

Again I state, big believer in we are not alone in the universe, ( considering its size), NOT a believer in little green men coming to visit us. I presume some form of atmospheric gas occurrence is responsible, just what kind and how.

Very very similar sounding to the gentleman's experience in Tyrone,PA.
