How do I explain this....I've never seen this before in my life.
I was out in a boat tonight. The sun had set but it was still light out. I'm looking at the sky and I see this straight up and down shadow coming
literally out of the ground in this swamp. It looked like it was about 15ft high, 1 foot wide and very straight. It was very faint and it was not
the sky in the background. It was just like a flashlight shooting straight up except it was a faint dark shadow. It was coming from one specific
area about 20 ft into the bog from the shoreline. There are no houses around this, nothing foreign could've done this.
I drove back and forth for about 20 mins until it was dark and couldn't see it anymore.
I've lived here for about 10 years now, I'm extremely familiar with the lake/swamp area and I have never in my life witnessed something like that.
First thought was swamp gas, but gas would not come out of the ground in a straight shot like that, it would be wavy and possibly cause a blurred look
behind it. I'm completely stumped here. I'm going tomorrow when it's light out to check it out first hand. I would've walked to it but I
didn't have my boots with me....and of course since I'm fishing, no camera or cell phone. I'll try to post pics tomorrow if I see it again.
It wasn't my eyes playing tricks on me. I was watching it for about 20 minutes and it was visible only from certain angles but always coming from
the same spot.
