I want to be clear on this event, I was on my way to N.H from Doswell, Virginia, after staying the night in Kings Dominion ((hotel name deleted)). I was the passenger in a 2013 Toyota white corolla.

I had my wife make a hasty report as I was eating sushi in Epping, NH, because I didn't want it to go without being reported.

The driver was a grade school friend of mine 37 years ago, known him my whole life.

Going over a bridge on 295 there was two pulses of energy (Light) White flashes that was beyond anything ive ever seen. we both turned to eachother and said, "What ((deleted)) was that?"

I understand they're a lot of hoax reports, but mine can be corroborated with a motorcycle police officer that had pulled over a car maybe a half a mile later on the left hand side of 295 north. These two light pulses were symmetrical in strength and time. It was almost like a picture flash but blindingly intense.

Not sure if this was government or ufo, just wanted to file this, as I have never in my life been a part of anything like this. Still creeps me out.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the source of the report, and he seemed to us to be quite serious about the sighting. PD))
