Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Shape: Flash
Duration:5 seconds
Bright Flash directly overhead.

I was laying in a chair in the backyard watching a satellite make repeated passes overhead. A bright flash occured directly overhead. The flash was the color of a camera flash. It appeared something very far away exploded. The distance to the flash seemed to be out of the solar system, even as far as to a distant solar system.

No sounds were heard. The time is correct within a couple hours, the date it occured was summer of 1990.

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. Flash may have been due to the reflection from an Iridium satellite, if, in fact, they were in orbit during 1990. PD))
