Location: Brodheadsville, PA
Shape: Flash
Duration:15-30 seconds
Flashbulb tight occurence on 3 consecutive nights ocurring same time all 3 nights and same location of night sky.

During the nights of the 2012 Perseids Meteor Shower is when i witnessed this event.It was beyond any doubt not meteors i saw.I in Northeastern Pennsylvania(Pocono Mountains), along the major West to East flight path approach to Newark International Airport.On the first night, as airliners passed heading Eastward is the time i witnessed multiple "FLASHING" as if something far above was taking pictures of something in the sky. The flash was only 2-3,maybe 4 flashes but definetly not Meteors.I witnessed these "Flashes" for 3 consecutive nights and roughly the same time, approx.around 11:45PM-12:15AM. On all 3 nights the Flashing was coming from the same location in the sky (nne location in the sky).

I would describe these flashes as if some thing was taking Photos and what i saw would have been the flashes of a cameras flashbulb. But these were definetly not anything like a meteoric nature.Just simple flashes in the night sky,no tails or afterglow of any kind,on 3 consecutive nights and around the same time of the night AND in the same location of the sky (N N E would be the location on all 3 nights During this time the Meteors were very scarce at the time of the sightings and did not pick up until roughly 90 minutes later.

Thank You for taking time to look over my report and i hope to receive some sort of explanation . This is driving me nuts trying to figure out.and i do beleive i have seen these flashes possibly and in another location of the night sky.
