15-20 people witnessed an unexplainable event on dec. 5th 1999 which lit the sky as if daylight

there were about 12-15 of us out driving back from a fraternity event. No one had been drinking as booze is not allowed at these types of events. I was driving my car with three passengers and myself down a wooded two lane road. I was tired as it was late that night and I pulled over into a church parkinglot to allow my friend brandon to finish the rest of the drive back. As I approached the passanger side car door, the sky lit up as if daylight, it was the most beautiful color blue I'd ever seen, almost as if the sun were beneath my feet shining a spot of light on the sky overhead and in an intant it was gone back to black. As I turned my head back to the west I saw what looked like a black square with sparks shooting off from in front of it, flying at an unbleivable speed and dissapeard over the treeline in about another 2 seconds. The sparks looked exactly like what you would imagine a childs sparkler on new years would look like all around the black box.

It wasn't until last weekend when the unusual event came up again in conversation that I figured I'd see if I could find any info on it. Looks like many people saw what we saw.
