Location: Leesville, SC
Shape: Flash
Duration: 15 SECONDS
It was an overcast day. It was around 10 am. My passenger and I left Summit, SC, heading toward Leesville, SC.

We saw an incredibly bright flash of light. It was like I saw this coming from a mirror on a mountain? (like used in a signal or something) yet, I couldn't see an aircraft. The flash appeared to be white/silver.

My passenger said that they thought the flash had originated from the right side of our vehicle. I saw the flash on my left just above the tree line. It was very strange that we saw this flash on opposite sides.

We both said, "What just happened?" This was a very strange occurence.

I still think about this often.

Also, note that the sun was not out, it was an overcast winter morning
