Evergreen State College, Strange lit up sky with no noise

Friday July 13 2007 Location: Evergreen State College. Olympia WA.

At approximately 2:05PM the entire night sky became lighted briefly in microsecond bursts as during thunder or lightning. This situation has unusual because their was no noise. I looked as if a giant flash bulb went off in the sky This event intermittently at 30 second intervals for around five or six minutes The source seemed to be at a Southwesterly direction.

I went walking in the direction of the event and it stopped suddenly.

Neighbor independently claimed hearing indistinct booms and "grumbling sounds" from the Southwestern direction.
