Location: Pasadena, MD
Shape: Flash
Duration: 2 seconds
Characteristics: The object emitted beams
Mega flash of pure white light.

extremely powerful flash of pure white light that filled the entire sky and illuminated all surrounding areas. No lightning or storms present that nighr.

One flash that was similar to a mega camera flash or some sort of energy bomb that lasted an entire second and was followed by a smaller flash around a bright white ball that quickly shot up into the sky.

I have seen many storms throughout my life but this was completely un-natural and completely unexplainable... I would compare the energy released to the first light emmitted from an atom bomb.
