UFO filmed; huge flash of light over Memphis, TN

A huge blue flash of light filling at least part of the horizon was seen in the Memphis, TN area sky Saturday night. Dozens of citizens called Channel 5 WMC-TV to report this light and on the 10 p.m. newscast, WMC also showed a video shot by a local viewer that shows an unidentified object flying across the night sky just prior to the flash of light. However, WMC has not opted to post this video on their website (indeed, they haven't even bothered to have their televised report listed), at least at this point in time. Viewers have written WMC to request a link be posted to the film. The light was seen at least as far away as Olive Branch, MS, and from that vantage point, appeared to be north of Memphis.
