I'm glad to read that so many have seen these strobe, camera flash like flashes in the sky. I thought i was seeing things. My first sighting was in
1989, (forget the month) at around 5:00 a.m., driving, heading south out of Orlando Forida. The sky was crystal clear. I first saw one huge "strobe"
flash high up, then another about the same intensity, about a second or two after the first, not in the same place, but near. The diameter, or spread
of the flash, should I say, was increadible. Like looking directly at a super huge camera flash. There was no lingering light or white spots, just
super fast flashes.
I kept looking up as much as possible to see if anything was there that could have produced these flashes, there was nothing. Then five more smaller,
less "spreading", but super fast bright flashes came next, with almost miliseconds between flashes. The area of sky, I estimate, of the last five I
could cover with my palm at arms length.
I puled my truck off the road immediatly after that in amazement and to see if any other drivers aroud me slowed or had any reactions hoping someone
else could confim what I saw, no one did.
Got back to my depot later that day and asked other drivers about it and none saw anything, not even the ones heading in the direction I was heading.
(I left earlier than anyone, I had the farthest to drive south).
With no where to get any info, like we have at our fingertips today, I couldn't find out anything about what I saw...but never forgot it, of
Since then I moved back to PA. What got me to look this phenomenon up, which led me to this site, was another sighting of these flashes.
I regularly sit on my back deck having a nightly cigar to relax. Vey dark back there. Many nites in the last few years I've seen satelites, meteors
and even one of those lighted objects that went from dim to brighter then dim again, which I assumed was a satelite catching the sun.
A couple of nights ago, I saw two huge flashes above my roof. Same super bright flashes as twenty years ago. I immediately ran out into the yard to
see if anything was up there, there was nothing. Only the two flashes this time. It was about 11:30 p.m. I didn't tell a soul.
I did't have time to read all the posts on this issue due to me wanting to post this right away. Maybe someone knows what they are....I hope.
