Just a little bit of what happened last night. I was at my brother-in-law's home on Wednesday going into Thursday at that point, roughly 11:40 or so. He lives on the out-skirts of Philly to give a general place of reference in the sky (as to not totally give away where he lives).

As you may or may not know there was a wicked Thunder/Lightning storm out. WE stood out to watch when my Bro-in-law noticed a portion of the sky light up almost a neon turquoise color. So i was like "neat!" because i didnt see it first hand that time around. So he pointed in the direction it came from, so I trained my eye to that spot. Wouldnt you know it, it happened again and again in the same spot. What could make this occure?

I did not hear or see any transformers blow up, so it was kind of strange if I may say so.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

How constant was it? And you say turquoise? Could be just some abnormal lightning, but then again based on how constant it was I could be wrong. If it was like one after another, then I can honostly say that it was turquoise lightning however odd that may sound. When I live in Mississippi ther was a night I woke up to a lightning storm that was one hit after another. This went on for about an hour or so.

So again, how constant was it and how vivid was the color?

We have had some really bad ice storms in the past here in Kansas City, MO. I have seen many lights like that because of transformers blowing up. And the way light travels faster than sound you could see it long before you here the explosion. It is cool to watch!

I am north of Philly in the Poconos and those were some wicked storms last night. We didn't get much rain, but our power has been going on and off since yesterday around 1 pm.

It started with some odd purple clouds in the sky; my son took notice to them, before the power went out the first time.

We had some really large BOOMS last night, without lightening, then the power went off for most of the night. It was really a quite phenomenon. They sounded more like sticks of dynomite, than thunder.

Transformers blowing up is usually an awesome show to watch. I lived by a substation growing up, and would see that happen quite often.

Just thought I'd share a little....Have a great day!!!

I'm just under Philly not far from NJ/Del. border. I always watch the skies and there was a wicked storm last night but I GAVE UP AND WENT TO BED, DARN.

as far as how consistant it was, it was more or less like 2-3 mins apart of each other. took me a couple of mins to see what my brother in law seen.

To describe it a little better the lights took up about 2 miles in diameter in the sky. roughly the same area in the sky.

Now i have seen transformers blow up, but never seen the impact of the light be so brilliant in the sky. The light itself didnt seem to be projected from a ground source but purely from within the cloud cover as a vibrant turquoise color.

Omg!!!!Omg!!!! I live right near Philly!!!! I saw those flashes, too!!

One happened right before a streak of lighting came down, right?

The flash happened to the right was this perfect line of lightning!!!

To tell the truth I am kind of happy someone saw those too because it was kind of weird.

I didnt see the bolt lightning persay after the fact that the light had appeared in the clouds. I will say that there were trees blocking the view for a ground based source.

I cant say for sure, that these lights were produced from a transformer. Though I am glad that someone else had seen the light also, so to speak.

It looked as though the inner portion of the cloud was the source of illumination.

What im trying to reach here is a reason for this brilliant color which i have never seen before in a lightning storm or transformer explosion.

Thanks for bringing to our attention your sighting of this awesome display. Much appreciated.

LOL Echo,

As for now I think I will dismiss any UFO based assumptions unless there is a linking source to it.. I like your theory though.

Meh, like I said, anything is possible. What else could it be? Something like the Marfa Lights maybe? Arora Borialus(sp?)?

Your right. It could be anything, and I will not exclude those possiblilities.

I got it! New technology, movies in the sky! Soon, they'll charge people to watch movies in the sky! And to keep people from viewing without paying, they'll have big guards with large blunt objects that will beat you if you're caught!

Man I'm good.

I've seen that before, and it was a power line arcing to the ground.

When hurricane Charlie hit I was in Daytona Beach Fl. shacked up in a beach house. It was a Cat 1 - 2 when it hit us there was green lightning flashing (house was beach front). It was mainly over the water.

We had an emergency radio going at the time and the hurricane center was mentioning the "green lightning". They claimed it was due to the high winds and the cloud formation and never mentioned it again.

I will do some research and see what I can come up with as to why it would occur on land. I might even have a picture or two.

sounds like an arc flash or arc blast from an exploding transformer as mentioned above

Maybe it's Dr. Frankenstein trying to recreate his monster?

Or MAYBE it was the Hulk!

Or even better, some crazy guy useing a giant microwave to try and animate the jolly green giant from a can of green beans!

Yeah, I'm kinda running out of logical ideas.
