Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Bright flash from the woods, followed by intense heat.

I was driving by myself heading East down Snow Hill Rd. when I noticed a bright flash coming from the woods on the left side of the road. It was blinding, similar to that of the sun's light. The heat was very high for about 3 minutes, and I was forced to stop my car because my gauges stopped working.

The entire area was lit up for about 15 seconds, and then went back to pitch black.

At first I considered that there was a bomb that went off in the woods, but there was no noise to follow the light, and it stayed lit a lot longer then any explosion.
