On Dec 6th, around 20:00 me and my wife were sitting in our apartment building when the power flickered. This went on for about 15 sec. before I went to balcony to see what was going on. Then I noticed something I cannot explain. A very wide aqua green light coming down from the sky. Let me note here that I live on putty hill which is one of the highest points in the city. There was also a low cloud coverage. This light  seemed to be powering up cause I could here a humming sound, and then a very bright beam would illuminate the sky. Every time the light beam struck it turned the nieghborhood lights off. I don't know what it was, but I have been shooting 532nm lasers into the sky at the same area  for star watching. I thought initially we were being attacked. I did not know what to think at that point honestly. Very scary, and unexplained. I was not the only one who saw it either. I have talked to 5 people all who live in that area ,and we all saw the same thing. Nothing was ever reported though. We thought for sure it would have been in the news. So I am researching this further. I need to know what it was.
