Posted: 7/27/2017
Location: Reno, NV
Shape: Unknown
Duration: ~40 minutes
Characteristics: The object made a sound
Large flashes of light, followed by distant explosion noise going on for almost an hour.

At around 1:35 in the morning, flashes of bright light started appearing outside in intervals. They would occur around every 5-7 minutes, and would fill up my whole room, along with all of outside.

Around 20 seconds after the lights appeared a loud but distant explosion-type noise could be heard.

This went on until around 2:10 AM.

The lights have not occurred since and I was only able to fully witness the last two. It could not have been a lightning storm, because it has been clear all day, and fireworks would not have been bright enough.
