tonight as we were driving around my town in east texas a bright blue flash lit up our car in a residential neighborhood. It was as if a transformer
blew up RIGHT next to us! The flash lit up the enitire area surrounding us. Keep in mind it was pitch black, this flash made it possible for me to see
perfectly. I promptly looked out the window of the car as my buddy slammed on the brakes thinking lightning had struck one of the houses nearby. That
was'nt the case however. As i looked upwards towards the sky i could clearly see a bright blueish/purple object dart across the sky. I am not exactly
sure of the altitude but it appeared to be a round shape and i could not make out any details. There were 3 of us in the vehicle and we all caught a
good glimpse of it, it was in sight for somewhere around 4-5 seconds then immediatley shot off in another direction and dissapeared. We concluded it
was not a meteor or shooting star, as we have all seen those and that is absolutely not what it was. Im lost as to exactly what it could be. Any
ideas, and did anyone else around this area see it?
We talked to one of our friends later on tonight and she said she saw a bright blue flash of light while at work on the other side of town but did not
get a look at it. Any comments are appreciated.
