To clarify what I meant by "a flash", it wasn't an intense flash, but rather a bright object in my field of vision that registered as a flash.
It didn't illuminate an area but appeared pretty much as it did in the image both in size and intensity. A constant bright spot moving quickly through
Possibly it entered my field of view from behind the rock on the left, but since I wasn't concentrating on the area it was more of a peripheral
registry, and I can't be sure whether it came from behind the rock or just appeared in the air. By the time I focused on it, it was approximately
where it is positioned in the image.
As I mentioned before, it appeared to me to be in the middle of the valley, and if that was the case it would have traveled a couple of hundred meters
in about half a second... very fast... and had an apparent size of a couple of meters in diameter. Though since there was no real point of reference
on the object, it could have been quite close to me, much smaller and traveled a much shorter distance.
I did have the sense that it was far away though... nothing solid beyond a brief sense of parallax that suggested distance to the object.
I have considered whether it may have been a glow bug of some description flying at speed only a few meters in front of me, but the path seemed a
little too straight for a bug, and a little too bright, plus other than the glow worms, I haven't seen flying glowing bugs in that area before.
My girlfriend did get photos. Between the iPhone 5 and the Nikon D600 we got hundreds of photos of the area. We have gone through them with a fine
toothed comb, and while there are many sun spots, there is nothing similar to the orb.
