I was doing some work at my dining room table and noticed a big green (turquoise) glow outside of my balcony.

I had dismissed this first glow as “I must be crazy”. When the second glow came, I was really surprised. I immediately told my girlfriend in the adjacent room.

I walked outside thinking that maybe a transformer blew. There was no noise outside of the whipping wind and rain. I waited for the familiar “pop” of a transformer while looking at the sky. Puzzled, I thought that it could have been an airplane or something else that, if the green glow was a catastrophic event, I should be able to see something.. Anything..

I returned to my PC and did a web search for the glow… strange things. I read up on this Thundersnow but the web sources pretty much said that the colors were blue and a sound followed. This did not seem to fit..
