Hey....to anyone still trying to answer this thread. Well just today I was sitting with my family and having dinner and decided that we wanted to
watch a scary movie on Netflix. ANYWAYS we were sharing events in our lives that we found scary then an occurrence, similar to the one, came to mind.
This event occurred during summer break, yes I am in high school, either in the month of June i believe, it was no where near 4th of July, just to
clear up any initial assumptions. So I was out walking my dogs in my neighborhood at around 12 or even 1 o'clock, minding my own business. My
attention was on my dogs since I had to make sure that they wouldn't eat anything or roll around in anything, and slightly because I was afraid to
look around, it was too late for me to even be outside but I felt bad that I lied to my mom saying that I walked them earlier in day, kind of felt
sorry for my dogs too. BUT ANYWAYS as I looked down the road in front of me, there was a red/pink flash that LITERALLY covered the sky. It appeared
like a camera flash but it lasted for about 3-4 seconds. I looked up as quickly as possible and I just saw the night sky disappear and be replaced by
this radiant light! the houses were of red tint, I was of red tint but before I could even comprehend what was going on the light disappeared. MY
HEART STARTED BEATING SO FAST. I looked around to see if there happened to be anyone and I mean ANYONE outside to have witnessed what I have
witnessed. BUT THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO ONE. There was no car in sight and I was freaking out.
Not going to lie, at first I thought it was a bomb. More like an explosion because in movies whenever there was a war going on at night, the sky
would lit up. I ran home and at that point I was petrified as to what may come. At the dinner table today I told my dad this story for the first time
since he just came home from deployment last month and after retelling this story I began assuming other possibilities. I remembered that a flare gun
can produce a red light. But I have seen the light of a flare gun since it is similar to a mini firework but the amount of light did not equate to the
light I saw. THIS MIGHT SOUND CRAZY: The sky looked like day. As if the sun only emitted pink/red light. It was so bright that the entire sky changed
color! If you wanted to get a better idea of what I saw, walk out side in daylight and imagine the sun emitting red/pink light so your house was
tinted that way. It seemed like an unnatural, yet natural light. Like I said the houses had a tint of red/pink light and I was a tint of red/pink all
around me was red/pink. It would be unbelievable for eye-witness to explain. I live in Hawai'i on the Island of O'ahu. I live so close to the city and
it is pretty quiet here. I don't see why a person would randomly feel the urge to shoot a flare gun right in my area so I was unsure whether to even
keep "flare gun" as an option. The light I believe came from the left side of the corner of my eye but it was not far since I had to look up and not
far ahead to see the first sight of light. The sky was a blanket of pink/red as if it were a SOLID blanket. Now like I had stated earlier the light
disappear in like .0001 seconds it was so fast that I was so confused, THE LIGHT DID NOT JUST SLOWLY DIE DOWN. Everything seemed normal again as if I
had blinked and was brought back to reality. My first thought was to run! then when I got home i thought " what just happened?!".
I told this story to my mother and sisters the day of the incident but they were mad that I woke them up and told me that it wasn't a big deal. So I
tried to stop thinking about it but I couldn't, I began researching but I found little in formation about so I had to give up but this time school
came so that I could focus. But now at dinner my curiosity has been reignited and I am ready to find some answers! I might have been repetitive but
only because I began to build frustration as I write this event. I am frustrated at the fact that I wish I had a camera at that moment so that I could
document it or that I wish at least someone was out there with me to experience it. If anyone can explain to me what happened that night it will be
greatly appreciated. I am not expecting a UFO or extraterrestrial answer, like if you say that "it must have been a flare gun", I won't be
disappointed. HOWEVER if you suspect it to be something "out of the ordinary" I would be excited to hear what you have to say. Sorry for the long
story, I tried to get every detail in, important or not. By the way the next day after the incident I asked my friends if they seen the light and they
sad no since they were asleep.
-P.S. I just created this account Oct. 18, 2013 HST because I just looked up on Google similar incidents and this site had kind of what I was talking
about. I find this experience to be of great importance to me so please please reply back. I do not care how ridiculous! I dislike this feeling of
mystery and uncertainty!
