Duration: 5 minutes
my wife and i saw a half-moon shaped light emerge to the northwest of town....perfectly symmetrical it expanded for about 5 minutes to rise well over bear mountain. it gained brightness the whole time..and always remained a perfect half-moon shape...then faded out over about 5 seconds time. at it's peak it was huge and covered half the northwest sky..outlining bear seemed to come from a place behind ellis mesa....very unnatural and non-human source.
