4 light sources rotating around the central central point were noticed by an eyewitness from the city of Blaricum (North Holland).

He's writing:

I was driving my car along the A27 motorway from Hilversum towards Almere. When a light in the clouds caught my attention. 

At first I thought it was a party or something, until I saw the continuity of light around the central point... the lamps continued to discolor... Maybe a projector or something like that, but I didn't see any residual or scattered radiation in the clouds that you usually see.

Original news

4 lichten die draaide om een centraal middel punt.

BLARICUM, NH — Ik reed in mijn auto op de A27 vanuit Hilversum richting Almere. Toen mijn aandacht getrokken werd door lichting in de bewolking. Ik dacht eerst van een feestje of zo, totdat ik de continuïteit van het licht zag rondom een centraal punt..lampen verkleurde wel steeds... Kan een projector of iets zijn, maar zag geen rest of strooistraling in de bewolking wat je normaal dan wel ziet.

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Light sources on clouds

Lasers, searchlights, car headlights and other light sources of sufficient power can form a column of light in a dusty or foggy atmosphere, various patterns on low clouds, fog or haze. Also, the rays can highlight parts of the cloud, objects or birds, giving them bizarre shapes.

Searchlights can shine with one beam, several. They can be stationary, move, and also form spinning carousels on the clouds, which can change shape and color.

It often seems that the light source is located at the point where the beam hits the cloud, and not vice versa.

Ice needles

Solid precipitation in the form of fine ice crystals floating in the air, resulting in cold weather (air temperature below -10...-15°). Day sparkle in the light of the sun, at night in the moonlight or by the light of lanterns. Often ice needles form at night beautiful glowing "pillars", coming from the lanterns up in the sky.
Occur most often during clear or cloudy the sky, sometimes fall from cirrostratus or Cirrus clouds.

Light (solar) pole

One of the most frequent types of halo, a visual phenomenon, an optical effect which is a vertical band of light stretching from the sun during sunset or sunrise.
