|Minneapolis-two flashes of robin egg blue lightening behind clouds, leaving sky lit a little lighter in that area for 45 minutes after.
While driving on 394W at 10:05pm, I saw what looked like robin egg blue lightening flash twice behind the clouds, lighting them up in the western sky.
That area in the sky stayed lit for 45 minutes after. (this latter difference in sky color may have not too been noticable to anyone not looking for it) The lit part of the sky was a lighter color than the surrounding sky, with a tinge of blue. This happened during a heavy snow storm so it could have been lightening, but I've never seen bright blue lightening before, and that doesn't explain why that part of the sky stayed a little bit lit for at least 45 minutes later...the lit sky has returned to normal at last peek (11:15pm)
