I think it's kind of pretty, even if it is man-made.

I showed them your picture. They said theirs was like that, but it was at an 75' angle. It was also nighttime on an unlit country road.

Blue Beam in Indianapolis, Indiana
Monday March 2, 2009
The second week of January, 2009, a 19-year-old woman was exiting I-65 at I-465 in the northwest part of Indianapolis, when she saw something very unusual-the sky lighting up with a bright, blue beam reaching from the sky to the ground. Oddly, the woman states that she was not afraid, but felt a sense of calm while watching the odd display.
She is the third person to recently report this phenomena in the same area, and officials are in the dark as to what this is. She stated that the sky seemed to "flicker." This lasted about 5 full seconds.
Shortly thereafter, as she was talking to a friend of hers, the friend's mother came outside to report that the house lights were flickering on and off. All three reports have come through the MUFON network.
Any ideas on what this could be?
VALLEY CITY, OH - JAN. 15, 2009 - A wide blue beam of light with a brighter blue central beam seemed to connect the sky with the ground here today at 11 p.m., according to a resident.
The man said the light was about two miles from his home and "behind a forest of trees" where a portion of the sky "20 to 50 feet wide" lit up for about five seconds. He said at its center was a "brighter blue core" of light - similar to a laser beam - and then a wider, but lighter blue, "spectrum or outer core."
Valley City lies in unincorporated Liverpool Township, Medina County, at the intersection of state routes 252 and 303, with a population of less than 5,000.
"It connected the ground to the sky and was a straight beam of blue light. The power in my home flashed, went out fully two times, and then stuttered back to full power all within about thirty seconds."
The light was seen near the intersection of Neff Road and Route 252 (Columbia Road).
"I once saw the ray of light seconds after the power flickered. I saw it through my bay window and was nearly imposible to miss due to the brightness. It felt like more than light though. I was scared and had an increased heart rate during and after, but it was like the light had some type of force."
He said there were difference between regular weather phenomena and this experience.
"This blue beam was more powerful and stronger than anything I have seen. The only comparison would be lightning, just more focused in one beam and in one area or space for a much longer time.
"If I had to guess after factoring a general distance, sky light and clouds, I would say it was anywhere from 20 to 50 feet wide. I am just trying to relay how massive it was.
"There was like a main, brighter blue core almost like a laser beam. Then there was a lighter spectrum or outer core that streched about twice as wide as the core around it. It stretched from sky to ground and was not dimmer anywhere along the beam."
SIMILAR CURRENT CASES
The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) has received 10 similar cases in five other states recently. To file a report with MUFON, go to their web site at mufon.com. The reporting link is available from the home page and very easy to use.
Read about the similar reports of bright blue flashes of light in sky that we previously covered. MUFON is investigating two of these cases now in New York.
One additional case was reported Jan. 14 by an Indiana man very near the woman's experience near Indianapolis on Jan. 13, but he did not want to tell his story publically.
