Bright light or meteor lights up the sky in rural area outside fresno california

I was listening to a radio broadcast tonight on coast to coast and they said to report ufo sitings and talked about why people never do. I always think about this experience even though its been over 20 years ago and really started to think about it after that police dash cam caught that light in the sky recently... that is exactly what me and a few friends saw out in the country while playing outside. We all were around 16 years old and in pitch darkness or at least hardly any light. It was very late and all of the sudden the whole sky lighted up like daytime and we all could see each other. It was so weird and we talked about it after but we never told anyone as we were kids and just thought it was a big meteorite.... I however have it etched in my mind that it was way way to bright for a meteor. It brought light as if it was daytime. The ground and everything lit up as if it was daytime. It was almost as bright as the sun or so it seemed. We actually could see each other for about 10 to 20 seconds. If you ever heard about this incident, I would really like to know what it was. I am not sure about the date but it was either in 81, 82 or possibly 83. I think it was closer to 82. I also had another strange thing happen in a dream I had about a UFO one night. I used to live by fresno state college and one night had a dream about a ufo. The next day there was a crop circle in the field that was part of fresno states ag department. It happened right about the time that the movie 'signs' was coming out about the ufo crop circles. They said it was a college prank but I thought it was strange that I would have a dream about it the night before it was seen. The dream was very strange and I could actually see the craft. The next day it was found. They would not let anyone in the field to view the evidence and threatened to prosecute any students that destroyed the crops. They said it was a prank but never caught anyone and never let anyone in the field to view the evidence. Anyway I always thou! ght that was a strange coincidence... the dream and the crop coming after it. remember, I was living at the time about a block away from where the crop circle showed up.
