|Silent bright blue flash disrupts electrical service in neighboorhood near military installation.
Power had gone out throughout neighborhood twice within 3 minutes. I was looking west from my residence toward Fort Campbell military installation and observed a bright blue flash, similar to lightning in intensity and appearance at horizon level. There was no sound with the flash. At that instant, the power in the neighboorhood went out again.
The sky was clear horizon to horizon.
Local police were called, but refused to investigate.
In total, power was lost for ten minutes with three outages in a twelve minute time span. This was determined by time difference between battery powered kitchen wall clock and clock on electric stove.
