|Flash of light in Northern Sky near big dipper on Thursday 1/25/07 seen by two people.
Just under the big-dipper a large flash of light appeared.
The light didn't move across the sky, nor did it move an any direction. It was like a STAR expanded 1000 times the size and then went away.
I waited around for a sound or boom, but to no avail.
Three days later I am still thinking about this because stars do not expand like this. Almost like a flashlight from the sky clicked on, then off suddenly. The brightness was two times that of a star, but not blinding and 1000 times the size.
((NUFORC Note: Possible flare, caused by an Iridium satellite. PD))
