Flash explanation

I have come to speculate that what I witnessed the night of my report of a flash, is none other than what is considered to be a Cosmic Burst as defined by Astrophysasist (please correct my spelling). I saw a special on Iowa public television and this fits the perfect explanation of what I witnessed. Supposidly these are very rare to be witnessed by the human eye. Thank you

((NUFORC Note: Witness provides no other details about the incident he describes. We believe that the possibility of a flare from an Iridium satellite would have to be ruled out, before we could conclude that the witness had observed a celestial explosion. PD))
