Location of Sighting: Kodiak, Alaska
Date of Sighting: September 25, 2021
Time of Sighting: 7:42 PM Local Time
Description: Two men saw a long cylinder of white light moving towards the mountains in Kodiak, Alaska. They described it as a white streak of light. One of the men first saw the object and then the other joined the sighting. They both took video footage. No sound was heard. The object was seen for nearly two minutes before being lost behind the mountains. Skies were mostly clear with a few clouds and it was near sunset.
Note: The witnesses may have captured a contrail from a high flying jet. I have had similar reports which turned out to have this explanation. I can’t say this with 100 percent accuracy, but it is “a more than likely” explanation. The witnesses did a good job of videotaping the object and I can understand their excitement. The zooming in offers more details.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.

It could be a “Sun Dog”…ice crystals in the atmosphere, rear-illuminated from the observer’s position by the Sun.
