|Bright Spot on Cloud Blinks Out of Existence
Was driving down 9-51 / Collier Blvd. at 8:00 AM Wednesday, August 1st, 2018, on my way to work (approximate coordinates 26.177734, -81.686994), when I noticed a bright white spot on the large cumulonimbus clouds in the distance, which were a washed out hazy gray color. The spot was diffuse and formless from my point of view, and seemed to be either inside the cloud or very near to it. (relative size was about the size of a dime at arm's length)
After about 5 seconds of the spot remaining stationary, it blinked out of view. It did not change its size or brightness in that time, it was there and then it was gone. My eyes were open the entire time.
