The Air Force gave a contract to a company in January to put a satellite in space with a tether on it.

To receive energy from the highly charged particles in the Van Allen belts and discharge them to the atmosphere.

If you saw the flash at 1 am.....the satellite could be discharging energy from solar flares to protect satellites...assets in space.


When they first were experimenting with this in 1992 New Zealand was protesting the technology. Since New Zealand hasn't protested this technology going into Space and now has closer ties to the US .MIL.......

That's my guess. Van Allen Belt energy discharge. Does anyone know why New Zealand was protesting this scientific theory? Back then it was to protect satellites from nuclear blast in space...by discharging the highly charged particles into the atmosphere...from the artificial radiation belt created by the nuclear blast.

Releasing that energy to Earth has consequences.

Right. Because having a camera out in anticipation of a random spontaneous flash is so likely that the entire claim is this easily dismissed.

Interestingly enough, about this same time about 60 miles due west of downtown minneapolis, I experienced an odd flash inside a 24/7 grocery store. Pretty much attributed it at the time to someone messing with the light switching in the store. The odd thing to was that the lights seemed to brighten to about three times normal and then went out with an odd sort of reddish purple afterglow for about three seconds then came back on at normal luminosity. Nobody else seemed to mention it in the store though.

As other posters have mentioned, it's most likely a bolide, a small meteorite which explodes up in the atmosphere and it creates a blinding flash.

I saw one of those last year. We were out night swimming in our back yard and suddenly a bright flash lit up the sky, very freaky. At first we thought that it was perhaps a bomb going off or something, but after consulting with a local university's astronomy department, they said it was a bolide.

We heard no explosion noise, just the bright freaky flash in the sky.

That happened where I live about 4 years ago. Sitting in my living room approximately 11:30 at night, the entire sky lit-up like lightning but it didn't flash and it lasted for about 5 seconds. The next day people were talking about it possibly being a UFO, or a meteorite. All I can say it was quite strange. My father in-law saw the same thing and he lives 20 miles away.

The media said it was a meteorite that crashed somewhere in Canada. They always say meteorites crash in Canada.
Nobody ever said they saw it hit. So maybe it just burned up in the atmosphere.

It's probably an EMP from a telephone wire or someones house. It is somewhat common and your phones will be messed up for a while.

An electromagnetic pulse wont necessarily destroy electronic devices. If it was weak enough or far enough away chances are it would simply interfere with wireless communications for a short period of time.


If it was far enough it would do nothing. It has to be line of sight to do damage. If it is weak, it would've beeen high enough up that it gets weakened due to a very large number of factors, including the altitude of the detonation, energy yield, gamma ray output, interactions with the Earth's magnetic field, and electromagnetic shielding of targets.

Anything in line of sight though would most likely be fried with today's EMP-sensitive microelectronics that are in everything.

Please please please explain to me how a telephone wire or someones house would cause an EMP. A non-nuclear electromagnetic bomb requires chemical explosives as its initial energy source. Last time I looked, my phone line does not have a chem lab in it...nor does it explode.

My hubby saw a bright flash in the sky here in south-eastern Missouri this morning, 9-25, while driving home from his graveyard shift at work...it was between 5:00am and 6:00 am. He chalked it up to lightning as there was stormy weather happening at the time, but he said this particular flash was so intense that it temporarily blinded him. I asked did he think a bolt may have struck the car, but he said it was more distant. I was awakened from sleep several times this morning from 3:00 am onward by thunder and lightning...We live about 100 miles from Centralia, Illinois to give you an idea of location....just thought I'd offer his experience!

Actually I did create an account to say this. I had an account years ago but can't remember the username or password for the life of me. I visit this site religiously and never really had anything to contribute until now.

The same thing happened to me. I found my account from 2005, it was hathorschild. All that after I started this account
It's all good and welcome back.

Yeah, AT&T was down here in L.A. almost all day yesterday. I use T-Mobile though and had no problems, however I only used my phone onetime yesterday evening.

I'm currently staying with long time friends in East Central IL where we've been camping for 2 days now, and we also noticed a flash.
I cannot speak for the cellphone part however, and it did not disturb our laptops or other electronics.
I cannot pinpoint this to the EXACT time posted by the OP, however within 30 minutes thereof.
Meteor? Very possibly.

This phenom has been documented all around the world in EQ prone areas.

Furthermore, while this is a little bit north of the NMSZ, I would not rule out an ionospheric disturbance caused by the fault line

This is one way of looking at it, and it may be hitting the nail on the head.

Not sure if it's related. But I saw a shooting star at about 3 am in Se mich last night.

Maybe there were others and maybe a bigger one was what you saw earlier then the one I did.

just a guess prob not right though,.
