A man in Schoharie County, near Schenectady, New York captured a crystal-clear photo of what appears to be a bright spot in the sky with a beam underneath it over Vroman's nose in Middleburgh recently.  The photo taken by Lance Manning was shared with a Facebook group specifically for Middleburgh residents and has gotten quite a bit of attention.

In the Facebook post, Manning explains where he was in Schoharie County when he saw the bright light and beam in the sky. He says that he was, "Driving on I88 (and noticed it) just as (he was) coming down the hill to the Schoharie exit.  Or on Route 7."

Many of the subsequent comments were from those who have either had similar experiences or have heard from others in that area who claim to have seen the same thing.

Here's what others in the Schoharie County area had to say
