Duration: 4 seconds
Snowblowing at 7am, still very dark, could only see with headlight. The sky and everything around me lit up in a shade of blue, it only lasted 3 to 5 seconds but it turned dark into daylight. Scared me pretty good, didnt see a craft but whatever it was it was extremely bright. Not lightning, nothing I've ever seen could describe it. The snow under the trees had a blue hew and it was as if was mid day. My wife and daughter also witnessed the flash. One of the spookier events I've witnessed, including grizzley bears, mountain lions. Thought maybe it was a meteor, or even a nuke initially based on the intensity of the light. What was it?
