Ball Moves Up Column of Light


     William J. Sedwic, of Arnold, Mo., his wife, son and a friend were at the public launch area of Clearwater Lake, near Piedmont, Mo., July 22, 1973. Clouds were hanging low over the lake, but there was no wind. At midnight the group saw a column of light extending from the water into the sky at the north end of the lake, between two land masses. Inside the column of light, a brilliant ball of light appeared and rose up the column, fading to a dull white after 30 minutes. (Reported to John F. Schuessler)
