The past few nights ive been sky watching and noticed the sky flashing as if a lightning storm was occuring someplace but there were no clouds and its been constant, I dont know what to make of it, perhaps its because of that recent solar flare?

Often lightning will travel horizontally across many miles, meaning it could be heat lightning or a storm could be on the horizon.

But why does it happen every night?

I'm not a weather expert, but heat lightning is a common summer occurance and, as I understand it, it happens because the hot air of the daytime is interacting with the cooler, nighttime air, causing static electricity to build up.

I notice you are from the midwest, reesie. You have been experiencing a bit of humidity as of late, haven't you? I have been seeing heat lighting a lot around here.

Heat lightning is most often seen at night because it's dim compared to conventional stroke lightning — if anything about lightning can be called "conventional" — and "heat lightning" is typically observed during the heat of summer.

Basically, all you're seeing are flashes of light diffused through the dense atmosphere across hundreds of miles, from very distant thunderstorms in-progress.

Maybe it's the sun that is burping plasma.

Maybe it is simply due to meteors?

In this case you are lucky. I tried to spot one last night but failed.
