I have been hearing strange reports coming from the North East of Scotland that there was a Orange Flash that covered half the sky coming from the direction of the sea which is to the east. And there was wide spread power disruption knocking out street lights across the whole of Peterhead. Some people reported losing all power while others lost only street lights. This happened 2 weeks ago. Can anyone add anything to this?

Do you know roughly what time the flash was observed at?

I live in the NE of Scotland and have not heard any reports of this orange light, although I live significantly further north than Peterhead so it may not have been visible from my location. I would still be interested to hear any more information if you have it.

Where have you been hearing these reports?

The only reference I can find on Google is this thread!

Also be useful to know when this supposedly happened - makes it easier checking the local paper
Obvious people to contact would be the Press and Journal in Aberdeen.

I'm in NE Scotland too, and I haven't heard anything about this, although I'm about 70 miles from Peterhead. Will see if I can dig up any local reports. Thanks for posting.

I have the witness here.

At 9.50pm there was a green flash in the sky and the power for the street lights went out in my street for about 15 mins. Also other area's of the town people's power for there house went out for about 15 - 30 mins. Also people in the countryside had their power off for about 2 hours.

At the risk of making a one word reply: when?

Without the date we can obtain no collaboration nor look for possible explanations.

Bright flash then power outage, seems like a substation explosion to me . Mind you that depends, if the flash was over the sea then the outage couldnt be anything to do with the Grid itself. Unless its some kind of overload at a hydro electrical station, you know , the ones where the dynamo is attached to the sea bed , and works with the motion of waves??

Green flash in sky?
Meteor perhaps?
Might have smashed into a power cable, or substation?
Ill tell you one thing there is certain types of street lights.
That go out from vibration, not necessarily power outage.
They have surge protectors, residual current devices, in them in case people smash into them in there cars.
You can kick them and they go out.
But they are steel specific units, not the ones mounted on wooden electricity poles.
Vibration could have cause them to go out, and not the houses power.
Need info on what type of street light.
