Shape: Flash
Duration:1 second or so
Wife and I were watching TV...she noticed a bright orange flash outside to the west/southwest. We're 7 stories up in our building, and if you looked west/southwest and held your arm up at a 45 degree angle, that was the approximate trajectory/elevation. It flashed orange, brightly, and our power dimmed shortly. There are no power lines up that high in our area, and no transformer boxes either. my wife, who usually laughs at me when I talk about UFOs and other 'theories', was really disturbed...
