|Summary : I was watching TV in my bedroom. It was about to doze off when out my window I saw a very large blue flash. The flash filled my room and I could see everything as clear as day. I remember looking at the clock just before it went out. It read 12:58. All the power in my house went off, then on. The flash lasted about 15 seconds from the time it came and went.
The flash was so bright it appeared to be coming out of my own backyard. The four other people who witnessed it were outside and say the flash filled the sky.
