Bright Flash directly overhead.
I was laying in a chair in the backyard watching a satellite make repeated passes overhead. A bright flash occured directly overhead. The flash was the color of a camera flash. It appeared something very far away exploded. The distance to the flash seemed to be out of the solar system, even as far as to a distant solar system.
No sounds were heard. The time is correct within a couple hours, the date it occured was summer of 1990.
Date is approximate. Flash may have been due to the reflection from an Iridium satellite, if, in fact, they were in orbit during 1990. PD
