Streaks of Light close to the ground, followed by odd sensations

I enjoy to take walks late at night as excercise, from 1am to 3am--having coffee and smoking while walking through the side streets.

On one of the nights (yesterday), I was gazing far off into the night sky observing the constellations when I saw a streak of light, akin to a shooting star--though it appeared as if the light source came from behind a cloud. It looked as if whatever was zooming at high speed behind the cloud had casted its light onto the cloud--something which a shooting star is unlikely to do.

I felt an odd sensation on the top of my head , almost like goosebumps or static electricity. I felt the need to run my fingers through my hair to make the feeling go away. I found this as odd, but passed it off as only a shooting star.

However, the night after (tonight) I experienced something similar to the night before--only much closer...while walking along a sidestreet before getting to my home, I thought i heard an animal behind me, so i turned my head to take a cursory glance; almost half a kilometre away and a quarter kilometre above myself I saw a flash of light streaking across the sky horizontally, as if a firecracker went off; vibrant white, almost blinding. I could hear a hiss and a crackle (like a vinyl record player makes). And again, that odd senstation occured--a static feeling on the top of my head followed by vibrations down throughout--stopping around my knees. Though what is strikingly odd is how close it was to the ground and to myself. I could hear it as well, so there is no mistaking the streak of light coming from within the earth's atmosphere.

During my 3 years of walking during the night I have never seen anything like this--not to mention twice during two nights. I have seen a shooting star before several years ago, and I know enough to know that there must be another explanation for this. However, the sensations that have occured directly after the flashes were not caused by my inner body, as I have never felt this particular way ever before.
