Shape: Flash
Duration:2 seconds
Bright flash with no sound lighted up backyard

Neighbor next door reports a very bright white flash with no sound, that lighted up her entire backyard approx. 5 cleared acres next to I-5. At time she thought it was heat lightning but determined that the air temperature was too low. Neighbor has lived here 60 years and is as sharp as a tack. I was asleep at the time and did not see or hear anything.


Addendum to original report

Neighbor reports that house lights in three different (but grouped together on five acres) houses went out for 3-5 seconds during flash and then came back on immediately afterwards. Street lights stayed on.
