Location: Yakima, WA
Shape: Light
Duration: 1 second
Very bright flash of light

I was looking West-Northwest in the night sky about 25 degrees above the horizon, when I noticed a very brief flash of light; then another one a few seconds later.

I have never seen anything like this before. There were no planes in the area, nor any sounds associated with the lights.

((NUFORC Note: Possible Iridium satellite reflection/flare?? PD))
