Summary : WHILE WATCHING MOVIE AT DRIVE-IN THEATER, THE ENTIRE AREA LIT UP FOR SEVERAL SECONDS WITH A BLUE-GREEN LIGHT.

I WAS WITH MY WIFE AND DAUGHTER WATCHING A MOVIE AT THE SKYVIEW DRIVE-IN THEATER.

ABOUT 15-20 MINUTES INTO THE MOVIE THE ENTIRE AREA WAS LIT BY A VERY BRIGHT BLUE-GREEN LIGHT FOR 3-5 SECONDS.

AFTER THE LIGHT WAS GONE I LOOKED OUTSIDE THE CAR BUT DID NOT SEE ANYTHING ELSE. BEING THE FORTH OF JULY. I PRESUMED IT WAS SOME SORT OF FIREWORKS.

HOWEVER, THERE WAS NO SOUND ASSOCIATED WITH THE LIGHT.

THE DRIVE-IN WAS ALMOST FULL WITH APPROXIMATELY 100-150 CARS.
