Hi everyone, long time listener, first time caller
So my wife I were sitting at a traffic light at around 12:15am this morning in Saint Petersburg, Florida last night, when we experienced a similiar
flash. I have lived in Florida since 1989, and am well acquainted with both Lightning and heat lightning, this was neither. This was a flash of
light that was quick, and pure white, and seemingly omnidirectional. What's really strange, is seconds after it happened, two cops who were sitting
in a parking lot about a block up both put on their lights and sirens and took off in different directions. We assumed a transformer was blown
somewhere, because that was the only thing that seemed to make any sense, but were both confused. I've actually seen a few transformers go in
person, and i've personally never seen it happen in a single split second flash…it really reminded me of the thing they flash in men in black to
give people amnesia. It might have actually been that, because we immediately went to Mcdonalds after that, and I swore two nights ago I was never
doing that again!
Anyway, happy I finally made an account, now I can chime in!
And if you think I made the account just to share a made up story, well, I'm not that crazy.
