Oh...hey...I have an idea...

OP...why don't you give me the name of the county you live in and I will call the sheriffs department and ask myself if something happened using the description you gave in your thread!

That should help clear up some of this and you can remain anonymous!

I am in Montreal as well. The weather last night was a mixture of rain, freezing rain and snow with 90 km/h winds. Perfect conditions for transformers to blow.


This is what I also think it was. winds peaked to 100 km/h. Power lines touching, breaking and transformers blowing. I wouldn't know if the conditions were the same in the OP's area but it would explain it for here in Montreal last night.

I just walked up 3 blocks where the flash should have been, everyone had lights, Ash st had lights ALL the way up it.. i turned down 16th to birch st and they all had lights..

so it couldn't have been a transformer.. everyone, in every direction had lights .. even the street lights were on...when i got back .. the FD had their trucks back in the bays..

and my eyes are still sore...

Transformer blew. Almost bet ya.


Have you ever been around when one has blown? It's EXTREMELY loud, and the light it casts is not blue. It's white. I know, I've seen them blow a few times in my life...one was a bit too close for comfort. Unless Komodo heard a massive booming sound that went along with the flashes, I seriously doubt it was a transformer.

exactly! there wasn't any 'boom' nor a 'krump', all was silent all through the 3 flashes I personally experienced.. as close as the flash was, if it was a tranformer, I should have heard a boom for sure!

Not necessarily. Transformers can blow from miles away. Not even from your neighborhood. You would see a colored light but would not hear the blow.

Here's an example.

Yesterday afternoon I was coming home from work and there were a few dark clouds around. All of a sudden a huge blue flash went off, but it seemed like it was right infront of my eyes, like a blue flash across my face! I was like WTF was that! There was no lightning, no rain, no storm, just a few clouds. No other flashes happened.

Cool video, but it says right in the description that it's a downed power line caused by a severe thunderstorm. On another note, I've experienced what the OP is describing, and I'm a pretty sound sleeper. To have a light so strong, that it pierces through the curtains, through the darkness in the room, through your eyelids, and cause enough pain to awaken you from a deep sleep....that's one helluva bright light. I've experienced it once - last year. AND, it was blue-green. No power lines were down, no transformers blown. The light in that video would not awaken me from a sound sleep inside a closed room with drawn curtains. We're talking seriously intense light here. I'm more inclined to believe it is the bolide thing another poster mentioned. That video comes a bit closer to the brightness levels.

No, I didn't miss it. Blowing transformers could have been miles away from those 3 blocks. The reason why I posted the link for an example.

But it seems your mind is set that it was otherwise or extraordinary. it's fine, I respect that.

I lived high on a hill in Los Angeles during the "94 earthquake. Upon being woken violently I ran, grabbed my baby, and stood in a doorway looking out over the city, with husband. Suddenly several transformers blew. I had no idea what it was at that time and thought we were being bombed, the lights were so bright white with a blue ending to them, I truly thought they may be small nuclear bombs! Funny now, but it was frightening then.

My husband knew though and cleared it up for me quickly. He wasn't completely sure either, until we saw a few neighborhoods in the dark.

So, you never know, could have been transformers, seems the most likely. You would not necessarily hear them.

And like the earlier poster said, give him your county so he can call the police department if you won't. I agree.

I also have to add that there is a high fire danger here in Bexar county, anything would go up like a torch in an instant it's so dry. So anything sparking would set grass and trees ablaze. I cannot say what is was, but, it was very unusual and was not answerable by City Public Service here or anyone.

I saw the same thing about a week ago, I was outside at night and when I walked in the door there was a very bright blue flash.
There is no way it was a transformer, it would have to be fairly close to be that bright, close enough at least to hear the huge bang transformers make when they blow up.

It was Wednesday at 4:50pm. The flash was super bright and felt like it was right in front of me. Like the flash happened right in front of my face. Had to adjust my eyes for a second before taking off. Was driving my car at the time. Didnt see any other flashes or anything after that. Just one huge flash and I had no idea where it came from.

There have been many reports on the net, as well as airnav and pilot reports, of ball lightning, and sustained lightning in clear skies, as well as long bursts of low rumbling thunder. The thermosphere, like the earth itself, has been taking a beating these days. The natural frequency of this planet’s beautiful hum, its Schumann resonance, has been disrupted. We live under a sky is that is an ocean of turbulent ions slamming into one another; it takes so very little to produce phenomenal static discharges of an awsome yet ferocious nature.

but this light was so bright I felt it in my eyes


umm.. if US is under some kind of High-altitude nuclear explosions (HANE) attack... it would be nice to know

A high-altitude nuclear detonation produces an immediate flux of gamma rays from the nuclear reactions within the device.




EMP incident accompanied a high-altitude nuclear test over the South Pacific and resulted in power system failures as far away as Hawaii. A large device detonated at 400�500 km over Kansas would affect all of CONUS. The signal from such an event extends to the visual horizon as seen from the burst point.


any power failure in your area ?


If it was an EMP they would not be able to post on ATS.

I can't believe that people are still saying 'pics, or it didn't happen'!

It is hard to believe that they can not see how juvenile, immature, and uneducated this makes them appear. Almost as if they can not decipher intelligent conversation or articulation of an event, so they need pictures to help them out a bit.

Reminds me of a childrens' book.

I have to admit, I do find it a little strange that the OP's first order of business wasn't going to the FD across the street to find out what the incident was. If my eyes had been hurt by simply viewing a bright light and the pain persisted for an extended amount of time, I would be headed straight to the hospital to determine if any damage had been done or if there is any treatment I should receive to protect the future of my vision - afterall, it is one of the most important senses we have.

This kinda reminds me of the UFO incident a few years back, where a neighborhood full of families saw a strange, intense light that moved through their subdivision and displayed incredibly bright lights. There were a large number of emergency calls made asking about the lights and the source.

There is a thread on that event here somewhere, but I can't remember where it occured and what the description is, making it difficult to search for. Seems like it occured in Ohio or Illinois

Correct me if Im wrong. Usually blue-green flashes are electrical. (?)

And since this was posted around 15 hrs ago from this response...it couldnt have been "Urgent!'. Because nothing has happened afterwards, right? No implications anythings wrong. Correct? How "urgent" could it have been?

still...electrical I'll bet.
