Location: Hana, HI
Duration: 3 seconds
Odd lights illuminating the clouds, like in the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

We were actually just south of Hana, at the Seven Sacred Seven Pools Campgrounds. After getting done eating and setting up our sleeping arraignments we were looking at the stars in what was a partly cloudy ski.

All of a sudden a white light flash through the clouds from the Southwest to the Northeast going out to sea. The light seemed to dance through the clouds lighting them up from the inside out. It lasted just a few seconds.

Then a few seconds after that a green beam of light flashed by coming and going in the same direction.

I have never seen anything like it before and suspected it could be some type of laser range finding gear being used to calibrate the telescopes at the Maui Space Surveillance Complex....
