|My husband and I were sitting out on our back porch, facing west, watching what seemed to be lightening. It was like strobeing lights coming out of the sky, but the lights stayed in the same spot for over an hour and stopped ever 112 seconds and started back up again.
It was a cloudy night and my husband and I decided to sit out on our back porch to watch, what we thought, was lightening. After watching it for a while, we noticed that the strobeing lights never moved from the same small section of clouds and that there was no thunder or noise. Strobeing rays flashed downward out of the clouds erraticly, from the same spot for over an hour, stopping every minute and 12 seconds, just to start back up again. Every single time that we timed it, it was exactly the same spacing, between the pauses. Then all of a sudden, at around 23:??pm, they stopped. To tell you the truth, I have no idea what we were watching, except that it was very strange and that we have never seen it again, since that night. Note: We live out in the country and there are no towns for miles in that specific, western direction. There is nothing out that way, other than other homes out in the country.
