Further Description of Sighting: Sitting with friends on their deck in Budd Lake, one of us noticed the light and drew our attention to it to figure out what it was. We thought it was a helicopter doing a search light (cone-shaped beam under the light), but it was way too high for any kind of search. We also noticed that it didn’t seem to be moving. Then the light disappeared, and the beam seemed to fade slowly, as if a plane had flown behind a cloud and the lights were illuminated the cloud. Unfortunately, there were no clouds in that area, the sky was clear. We checked online for any kind of “events” but found nothing until finding this site.
