Strange Light Formation that Morphed in the Sky Tonight
Ok .. I don't even know how to describe what I just saw. I went out to move my car and I glanced up at the sky and there was a very strange light formation.

Now, there is not a cloud in the sky ... and brilliant stars all around .. and I saw this light formation that looked like the sun brilliantly shining through clouds during sunset and the light radiating out at various angles .. like a trapezoid .. a very controlled shape of light beams .. but there were no aircraft in the sky as far as I could tell.

Then, I noticed the light morphing and almost disappearing like smoke dissipating into thin air .. just so weird to see light morph like that .. and then the angles got very irregular and the light turned into more of a 'puff' of light. I ran to get my husband quickly because I saw it changing .. when we looked up at the sky, he saw what was left over .. a very thin/transparent irregularly shaped light formation that just got more and more transparent and finally disappeared. He thought it was very strange as well.

I have zero knowledge of UFOs .. does anyone know what this could have possibly been .. or does it sound like anything you have seen or heard of? Thanks.

Re: Strange Light Formation that Morphed in the Sky Tonight
I'm in York County, PA and we were at a Barn Party. We were just getting ready to set off floating lanterns when I looked up and saw the light in the south/southeast sky. It looked like a huge comet, with a very globular tail. There was a bright light at the bottom, surrounded by a glowing cloud. Then, the light at the bottom suddenly seemed to go up disappear, leaving only the cloud, which slowly dissolved. At least 20 of the 50 or so people saw it. It was the strangest thing I have ever seen. It was probably sometime around 8:00 PM, but I am not sure the exact time. We spotted it to the right of Venus (Is the bright object in the southeast sky Venus?)

You desribed the same thing I saw tonight around the same time in Tolland Connecticut. It only lasted a minute or 2. Just long enough for the people at our bonfire to look up in astonishment.

Yes, that is why I looked up at the sky in first place ... Venus caught my eye (or whatever that large bright planet is) .. and then .. I saw the light .. it was very large too .. very large.

I saw the same thing at 7:45pm. But I am in Massachusetts near the New Hamphire border. It was in the south sky. It looked like a flashlight pointing down from the sky with a smokey fog below it.The light moved from left to right as if someone was swinging the light from side to side before it faded.

Night Time Artificial Cloud Study Using NASA Sounding Rocket
09/10/09

A rocket experiment that may shed light on the highest clouds in the Earth’s atmosphere was conducted from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on September 19, 2009. The experiment was launched on a NASA Black Brant XII Sounding Rocket.

Black Brant Sounding Rocket The Charged Aerosol Release Experiment (CARE) was conducted by the Naval Research Laboratory and the Department of Defense Space Test Program using a NASA four-stage Black Brant XII suborbital sounding rocket. Using ground based instruments and the STP/NRL STPSat-1 spacecraft, scientists will study an artificial noctilucent cloud formed by the exhaust particles of the rocket’s fourth stage at about 173 miles altitude.

Ground based cameras and radars were based at various observation stations along the Atlantic coast and in Bermuda. Because of the optical observations, the launch required clear skies not only at Wallops but also at the multiple observation stations.

The Spatial Heterodyne IMager for MEsospheric Radicals instrument on the STPSat-1 spacecraft will track the CARE dust cloud for days or even months. The SHIMMER instrument has previously viewed natural noctilucent clouds for the past two years. The CARE is the first space viewing of an artificial noctilucent cloud.

Data collected during the experiment will provide insight into the formation, evolution, and properties of noctilucent clouds, which are typically observed naturally at high latitudes. In addition to the understanding of noctilucent clouds, scientists will use the experiment to validate and develop simulation models that predict the distribution of dust particles from rocket motors in the upper atmosphere.

Natural noctilucent clouds, also known as polar mesospheric clouds, are found in the upper atmosphere as spectacular displays that are most easily seen just after sunset. The clouds are the highest clouds in Earth’s atmosphere, located in the mesosphere around 50 miles altitude.

They are normally too faint to be seen with the naked eye and are visible only when illuminated by sunlight from below the horizon while the Earth’s surface is in darkness.

A team from government agencies and universities, led by the Naval Research Laboratory, is conducting the experiment. In addition to the Naval Research Laboratory, participants include the DoD STP, NASA, University of Michigan, Air Force Research Laboratory, Clemson University, Stanford University, University of Colorado, Penn State University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology/Haystack Observatory.

Good description, except the brighter light didn't really move when we saw it. I can't believe this thing was seen as far South as Maryland, and as far North as Connecticut.

Would a meteor look like this if it grazed the upper atmosphere? What we saw really didn't move, like a regular meteor (shooting star) The glowing fog/cloud was surreal.
