Location: Farmington, MN
Shape: Flash
Duration:A split second
Brilliant green flash sighted

On a Thursday evening on August 24th, I was laying in bed, observing the late night commute out of my bedroom window (looking at cars at night settles me down before I go to bed). As I was observing the late night streets (at the time it was about 10:00 pm) i noticed an extremely bright green flash that occupied the entire sky for about a split second, brighter than lightning.

I was slightly horrified and scared by what I had just seen.

I thought it was a mere hallucination, until I told my friend at the bus stop about a week later, and he said that he had seen it as well.

These flashes seem to go on regularly around my area for some strange reason in which I don't know, but no flash was as bright as I had just seen.
