Posted: 12/5/2014
Location: Powhatan, VA
Shape: Flash
Duration: 5 seconds
We saw a bright blue and red flash from above the clouds that was silent, and looked like an explosion.

I was following behind my fiance in my car, going west on Route 60 through Powhatan. We had just entered the county line. It was dark and cloudy outside with a good amount of wind and a slight drizzle.

We both saw a huge bright blue flash from above the clouds that turned red towards the north part of the sky. It looked like an explosion from behind the clouds.

I turned my music off and listened for a boom or sound and it was silent.

This happened 20 minutes ago and there are no thunderstorms or severe weather in the area.
