Shape: Flash
Bright blue/white light shot up and across sky

I woke up at 4am and decided to step outside for a cigarette before I had to get my husband up for work. When I finished, I went inside and remembered that I had to go to the atm and I had to do it before my husband woke up and left at 5:30.

As I stepped outside and walked to the car, I noticed that the area was lit up with a dim bright light; almost like a streetlight was turning back on. I almost didn’t pay attention to it while I was walking by, but I remembered that there isn’t a light there so I looked up.

As I looked up, there was a bright blue/white flash of light above me that resembled a circular shape and then it shot up and across the sky.

I stood there for a minute trying to find an explanation of what had happened and couldn’t. Nothing happened again for the remainder of the early morning.
