Shape:
Duration:2sec
We were driving East on I40 toward Alb when I saw a flash of blue light that lit up the whole sky. I saw no craft with this light. li

This isn't the first time I've seen this type of light. About 2 years ago we were headed East for Denver(we are truck drivers) and it was late at night I was going though Rock Springs,Wy when I saw the same bright blue light like a explosion behind a hill. Also, a couple of months ago I saw 2 oval white lights. It was near the Nesqually exit on I5 right where you see Mt.Rainier in the distance. This was early A.M and were only seen for a couple seconds. They were as bright as a street light.

((NUFORC Note: We presume that the witness may allude to the dramatic flash that occurred over western New Mexico at 23:18::10 hrs. (Mountain). Hence, we have amended the time here. PD))
