The nature of Light has been a dilemma in the world of Science. It is a micro mass particle which is basic to all mass structures of Celestial bodies. Its motion is similar to bound electrons which are expressed as oscillatory.
The cause of motion of light has never been exactly Understood by the Status Quo of Physics. If its an entity it must have volume, and if it bounces it must be a mass structure.
We really don't know what light is. We know it behaves like (meaning we can measure it as) both a quantum and a wave. We also know it is massless in the traditional sense of inertial (baryonic) mass that is affected by its speed.
But, and this is a big BUT, light also has momentum p = mc; where m is a virtual mass that is not affected by its speed (in this case c the speed of light). That is to say, with experimentally observed momentum (photoelectric cell effects), we have to conclude there is some sort of mass even though it is not affected by the Lorentz transformation that changes inertial mass at high speeds.
We can calculate the virtual mass from E = mc^2 = hf; so that m = E/c^2 = hf/c^2 = hc/L//c^2 = h/Lc; where h is Planck's constant, L is wavelength, and c is light speed. From this we see that the virtual mass of light varies with the inverse of light's wavelength. This means higher energy light (shorter wavelength) has greater virtual mass. And from p = mc = h/L it also has higher momentum.
Here another thing to consider…
Scientists used pure light to create matter. Usually, it takes extreme amounts of energy to produce solid matter. They did it with ordinary light.

Maybe because we don't fully understand light nor do we fully understand if UFO's are biological, animal or mineral. Are they areas of light, are they areas of pure energy? "Lights" don't give people headaches but high concentrations of energy might. High concentrations of energy blow things up.

Who knows what kind of crazy stuff they could have that might just happen to emit light.
