I got off work at around 11:15pm and was leaving the downtown Atlanta area headed north on the downtown corridor. Around the fork, where I branched off onto 85N I looked due north and saw a BRIGHT area in the sky, I mean intensely bright, for miles across the horizon. It kinda looked like lighting behind a cloud that had been paused, mid flash. It even kinda resembles the aurora borealis. Unfortunately, I couldn't snap a photo, but I wanna know if anybody might have an idea of what that was. It looked like the various photos of "earthquake lights". And I stared long enough to see that it was most likely not sourced on the ground.

I'm down in savannah, I hope it wasn't earthquake lights. Haven't been living here long but does the southeast usually get earthquakes?

Actually this is odd because a couple of hours ago, here in Athens Ohio, my dog was freaking out so I took her outside to go to the bathroom... she decided NOT to go but sat around and looked around. I looked North East in the sky and saw that the sky was illuminated far brighter than behind me. There was no moon and it did indeed appear to have an aurora borealis look to it. I even brought my wife outside to look... thought I might be seeing things.

I've been here about 9 months so I'm not sure. I know we get hell tornadoes, but I don't believe earthquakes are the norm.

The brightness was amazing. I pointed it out to my friend who was riding with me. It was very faint in color, but almost a lavender color. weird...

There is another new thread here about a large solar flare. But I don't know enough of what they are talking about to know if it already hit earth and could have made that light show you saw. You are pretty far south to be seeing an aurora, but maybe it is possible. I sure hope it isn't earthquake lights. Nobody needs a quake. We all got enough on our plates with harsh weather, we don't need any shaking to go along with it all. What time of the day did you see the lights? Had the sun already set by then?

It was because of my geographic position that I skipped over aurora and went straight to earthquake lights. It also wasn't flashing, or flowing like the aurora seem to be.

It was about 11:15pm. I'll add this to the OP

We don't get a lot in this area by any means, but we did have one about 6 years ago up here in N. GA. All the appalacians are on old faults, so they are there, just not real active.

That one was the first I ever felt here- it was about 3.8 or 4.0 or something like that. I don't think it was felt in Atlanta though.

For me it was about... 11:00 pm here... maybe 11:15? It was as though it had a very very very faint green tinge to it? I couldn't tell though... it was definitely not the moon and wasn't any artificial light source....

Well, it was nighttime, and pretty dark. Also the hue on those clouds(?) was multi colored. The hue on this one was very faint, but had a hint of purple, resembling lavender. It was bright, but not full of color.

It could be HAARP or 'earthquake lights' that's wierd. Is it coming from the east? Can you take and post a photo or vid??

I looked up Atlanta and you have a storm cell to your east. Here's a pic from 2 minutes ago:

I knew I wasn't out of my mind lol. Well... what does this mean? could be nothing or a precursor to something bigger? 0_o I am not an earthquake expert.

So it is possible then right? A strong enough quake in the mountains could be felt here yea? Not to mention the lights were due north, so toward the mountains.

Yes the storm moved out before I saw it. The storm went east, but the lights were north, directly north. The downtown corridor, before it splits off heads due north, and that's when I first noticed it.

I actually wanted to take a photo or picture but didn't think it was worth even snapping as my phone does poorly even in low light conditions... this is why I need a nice camera >.
