|Unknown aerial phenomena over St. Louis county (Chesterfield/ Creve Coeur). Extremely large flash of white light midnight April 5th, 2009
Unknown arial phenomena. Large white flash lit up the sky, bright enough to block out the stars, and reflected off neighbors houses. Bright white flash of light to big to be a meteor, and no sound, too large to be a commercial fire work, literally thought an explosion was going to occur from something as big as a chemical plant. Occurred from west over or past Chesterfield, Missouri. Flash appeared for only 2-3 seconds. Flash originated from west to east completely blanketing sky lighting up 1/4 of Northwestern sky. Observed from Olive Blvd and Fee Fee Rd. area in Creve Coeur county part of St.Louis county at 00:05 A.M. April 5Th, 2009. Absolutly clear cool night, no clouds anywhere, and visibilty very good. 4-5 minutes later a Police helicoptor, not the medical Arch Air helicoptor from hospital, came from the Southeast heading west to where the phenomena happened. Helicoptor in area for 20 minutes circling large area and half the time could hear it and not see it for it was going around large area.
