Location: Indianapolis, IN
Shape: Flash
Duration:1-2 secs
I saw two yellow/pink flashes of light just left of the moon approx. 5 mins apart, not weather related.

Driving on I-74 eastbound toward Indianapolis at approx. 1125 pm EST when upon looking south toward the moon I saw two flashes approx. 5 mins apart just left of the moon. I'm a meteorologist with the NWS so I immediately thought it looked much like sheet lightning from a storm too distant to see. However, no storms/clds in the state with high pressure dominant. The flashes were only 1-2 secs in duration and yellow/pink in color. Very strange and I would have thought nothing of it except that there was no thunderstorm activity or any wx in the region. Strange...
