I live south of salt lake city, in "Utah valley".

several minutes ago, while stepping out for some air, I saw green flashes over the ridgeline which lit up the entirety of the salt lake valley. they appeared to be localized from a ground source. they reminded me of an explosive flash....but no boom. or perhaps like lightning from a distant storm....but skies are clear.

I could find no reports. I will continue to look for info sources.

I'm just around the point from you, and was actually in my garage about the same time. Didn't see it, but no booms or stormy weather either.

- Green flashes over the ridge line which lit up the entirety of the salt lake valley
- They appeared to be localized from a ground source
- No sound of explosion
- No sign of Lightning [ as skies are clearer ]

What can it be ?

First thing I thought of when I read your title to your post was the Texas reports on this as well. Strange things going on all over

I cannot understand why I am not seeing any local news or other corroboration. anyone living in slc area, near their window or outside would surely not have missed it.

the green light of the flash covered the ENTIRE valley and was very bright. repeated 4 or 5 times over the span of 1 minute. the ground source I would estimate line-of-sight redwood rd. definitely not east of the freeway.

something will turn up.

Maybe it was the prison at the point going up in flames

But really... I turned on the salt lake police frequencies, and didn't hear any chatter. So maybe nothing but a transformer? We Utahns know how often the power goes out around here, and with the snow fall we just got, I wouldn't be surprised if that's what it was. I watched a transformer blow near my house once, and didn't hear a boom... But it sure lit up the sky. I dunno.... All I know is I was driving home from a movie at 9:00. Was in my kitchen (which is on the ridge and overlooks the valley) making coffee 9:15-9:20, and then in my garage having a cigar at 9:25-10:15. Sadly missed what you saw...but think I would have seen it if it were huge, since the door to the garage was cracked.
Curious to know though.
