Several bright blue flashes of light

Travelling on a main, but very deserted road just before midnight, when there was a massive flash. It was almost like lightning, but was bright blue and seemed to come from all directions. Also it seemed to be very close to the ground. That was weird enough but about 3 minutes down the road it happened again, this time appearing a bit more green. About 15 minutes later it happened again near a populated area, quite a way from where the first lights appeared. The third light definitely did not come from the same place that the first two did. There is a chance that the first two lights came from the same place, but it doesn't seem very likely. We later saw the light again, but from a distance. It couldn't have been a plane or helicoptor as there was no noise. I don't know if there was radio outage as we didn't have it on.
