Reminds me of A light pillar. Went to APOD to find an old article on them and off all things look what today's image is.
APOD: 2016 February 8 - Light Pillars over Alaska

Yeahhhh! That's what I was talking about in post #7 when I said regular lights with strange atmospheric phenomenon! Thanks for adding that awesome picture. :D

Cool sight to see in person if you've never seen it before. Looks like the rapture or aliens beaming people up or something. :D

What were any other atmospheric conditions? Temperature? Humidity? Pressure? Was it windy? Looks fairly clear but was there a recent thunderstorm by any chance?

Awesome! :D I'll need to try and take some next time it happens here - I have some from last year but they weren't the best pictures. I need a better camera! :D

Any, sorry, back on topic! :eek:

2-10 maybe? 50-60% Maybe. No idea. Not a lot really. Nope. Like I mentioned. The smell didn't occur before nor after. But some people had issues.


3 People had sunburns.
Extreme tiredness and lack of energy in the morning.
Few felt ill.
And a lot of the photos and videos just..turned out black.

At this point I am going to go with it was an alien spacecraft that crashed. The military found it, took it out to this deserted area to do some tests on its damaged fusion reactors and warp core and then fired its phasers into the sky. ;)

But seriously though, what you are describing is pretty interesting. This photo here really does look like a laser, but like you said it is the only photo where it actually does.

No matter what it was, it was definitely an intriguing experience for you I'm sure.

Pretty sure... If it was everyone would have suffered I supposed and it certainly would have been a massively loud.

One more detail.

See that fog around the light. That appear as soon as these lights appeared. Out of nowhere. Was gone when the lights stopped. Duration 1 hour.

Australia and the US are going to use lasers to burn up orbiting space debris.
It could be part of a test.

And they sure don't like people being around them. Specially when you wake up in the morning and find gunship choppers stalking you. :evil:
