ok i,m putting this here cause at the min i don,t know where it should be.

south lanarkshire scotland last night round about 10 ish i,m sitting on sofa with girlfriend watching tv with lights out when all of a sudden the whole sky lights up for like a second and then goes dark again. i jumped up and said what the f was that?

both of us get up and look out window for 5 mins but see nothing,shes convinced it was lighting but i,m not so sure,she actually looked up on her tablet and was like heres where lightning strikes have been reported in last few hours but closest one was like hundreds of miles away at the time.

just flinging it out there incase someone saw same thing and wants to proof me or her wrong.

I'll say it was Heat Lightning, but I wasn't there so who knows. There was no sound?

i,ve not seen anything mentioned on mine but i,m 100% convinced the girlfriend is wrong and it wasn,t just a bolt of lighting.

Probably a good size meteor, the wife and I caught one last week, Wednesday night eastern US about 8:30 it came streaking down, broke into two pieces then immediately disintegrated into sparkling flashes. I told the wife, "that is a once in a life time sight" it was incredible!

We saw this one

What color was the light?

I know this may sound like a silly question, but the color makes all the difference. It could have been a bluish light, white light, or orange light, depending on the cause.

The reason I ask is because I live in an area that gets frequent wind storms. Whenever we have a power outage due to downed trees or poles, we can usually count on seeing the sky light up a time or two with a quick bluish flash. The cause is transformers exploding which explains why the light is blue instead of the normal yellowish white color that lightning usually has.

With heat lightning there is no sound. I'm not saying that's what it is, but that's my best guess =)

interesting i was driving home at around the same time last night when me and my wife saw
quite a bright meteor/fireball due north of us and around 60deg elevation
path was south to north and short so it looked to almost be falling straight down
as Lanarkshire is about 4/500 miles north of us i imagine it would have been a lot closer than us so perhaps
that was the source of the flash?

Someone in HEreford, Uk reported it...not sure if that's close to you? .....also if you go to " thelatestworldwidemeteorreports.blogspot.com" and scroll down .... you can see where people are reporting from, which direction the meteor went, how long, the color , the time etc... Hope that helps!
