Posted: 6/2/2012
Location: Issaquah, WA
Shape: Flash
Duration:15-30 seconds
Traveling, silent bright blue lights flashing/lighting up the sky.

I observed three or so flashes of bright blue light, lighting up the night sky. My window and blinds were open, and it was completely silent. This was not lightning. I would compare the flashes to the shutter of a flash on a camera, except several times. After three or so flashes, the sky was pitch black again. Whatever it was that was flashing traveled south (?) and flashed again several times, still blue and silent before stopping and traveled outside of the field of vision that my window provides. I was texting my friend at that time, and noticed that my phone had frozen and restarted itself because I received a text right as it happened. When I went to read it, the phone froze and would not restart/work until after the flashing lights were gone.
