|Blue/White orb w/ spot light dances in the sky near street intersection Beach Blvd and Atlanta Ave.
I came back from work and parked my car on Atlanta Ave. As I got out of the car I saw a bright blue light much like an over-sized LED, hovering a little passed the intersection of Beach Blvd and Atlanta Ave (looked to me like it was a little South of a Walmart parking lot on Beach Blvd). The orb would dart down and shoot back up, what seemed like 200ft, in extremely fast and disoriented movements.
As it shifted positions it would change from a bright blue to an intense white. I confused it at first to be a firework like a rocket/roman candle but it left no trail and did not look pyrotechnic in anyway.
My second guess was it was a drone like a quad-copter but it moved way too fast for a propeller driven drone. It could have been military if it used tiny jets instead of propellers but it made no sound, so that rules out the possibility. As it danced in the sky it would dip below the tree line, and would remain out of sight for up to 5 seconds, till it shot back up to at least 200-300ft.
Before I lost sight of it, I saw it shoot in and out of the tree line at least 3 times before it shot a beam towards the ground. It looked like a white spot light that pointed at the ground below it and then swung it towards my direction for a split second. (I didn't like that lol) Accelerated towards the tree line again and moved West towards the ocean on a horizontal flight path till it was out of sight.
I then walked into my apartment complex to find my neighbor running out of his house looking in the direction I had previously looking in. I said, "Hey I saw a UFO! It looked like a blue white light!"
He replied, "I saw the exact same thing when i took out the trash. That's why I came out to this side.
I'm glad you saw it cause I thought I was going crazy." Wow.
