four friends and i were travelling at approximately 1:15 am on highway 1 about 10 miles north of monterey california. all but one witnessed extremely large blue green flash on horizon that lit up the entire sky like lightning.a few miles down the highway and over some small hills, we encountered two almost perfect circles of fire in a large field on the eastern side of the highway. we did not see any structures nearby or any debris (as if from something that had crashed?) we witnessed two fire trucks going towards the fires a few miles further north, but after calling the monterey communications office, the dispatcher told us that he had no record of dispatching any type of emergency vehicles at the time in question. please email me with any questions or information that you might have, as i am extrmely interested, as well as perplexed, by this incident.
