Location: Gresham, OR
Shape: Flash
Duration:10 seconds
Three bright flashes appeared in the north sky within a 10 second period

Standing outside and the entire sky to the north lit up bright green, then darkness, another flash appeared light colored with some pink and purple. Then the sky went dark again and another flash appeared, mainly all white. The clouds were still, no wind was lowing. The clouds were sparse, not enough for lightning nor was there any sounds of thunder. It was completely silent, the air was still. We could not have been the only ones to witness this.

((NUFORC Note: Exploding power transformer. We spoke with several witnesses, one of whom reported back that a transformer had exploded. PD))
