Full Description of event/sighting: Hi Brian, last night I had the most amazing thing happen, the event starts out quite typically. I was standing in the front window of my office at home looking out the window. A very bright white light, the size of my fist at arms length lit up directly in front of me and across the street out of nowhere. For a couple seconds I stood there frozen, staring at this light and then the shocker of a lifetime, a light beam the size of a power pole instantly appeared from the light. Brian I can't stress enough how shocking that was to see, incredible. Funny thing was I don't recall seeing the neighborhood lit up, although this light was easily similar to any police helicopter. A helicopter would have lit up the whole place, as well rattled our windows had it been where that light and beam appeared.

Anyway of course instead of grabbing the camera I ran down the stairs yelling get to the back door. For some reason because of the direction of the light, I assumed it was coming towards us and over the house. So we both stand there like idiots in our socks in the snow with total silence waiting and nothing came over. I ran back to the front and saw nothing there anymore (heavy sigh) I'm hoping and praying that somebody must have seen that happen. There was nothing subtle about it. So bright, I couldn't see what was making the light. The beam as well was a yellowish-white color and was not fanned out like a hi-power flashlight would do. Please email me Brian if any other people come forward. Please and thanks and I really hope you have a great holiday and New Year Brian.


Update (sent to UFOINFO):

Hello sir,

I noticed you ran an article from Brian Vikes website. I am aware he is now changing his site and hasn't yet included the re-creation I made of my sighting that night, here it is hope you can update it. Thanks for the interest in my sighting.

I consider myself a bit of a veteran when comes to sightings,myself and family have had so many it's hard to keep track anymore, but I try. I made a video online eventually including a portion of the photo I've taken along with video stills here over the years. I'm working on a new one. If you can pass it along or include it on your website it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & take care.
