Duration:1 or 2 minutes
I was in the house when I heard a thunder like noise coming from outside. At first I thought it soundered like thunder but it lasted longer than a thunder burst. The rumbling lasted a good minute or more. I went outside and there were no clouds in the sky and the stars were out. At this time I seen a flash of light coming from a South West direction. Many reports came in to the Lewiston Police department from surrounding towns claiming that their houses shook and they also saw lights and balls of fire. Area bases claim that no aircrafts were in the area. Up to this date there has been no explanation of this much witnessed Freakish Phenomenon.

((NUFORC Note: We presume the witness means a date of 22AU01. We have changed the date here. PD))
