Short blue ball of light flashed on Gurgaon skies in North India state of Haryana-16th July 2012 @ 23:05.

On the night of 16th July my husband and I were chating in our 9th floor apartment balcony. Suddenly I saw round blue light flash at 80 degrees like a shooting star, but much bigger and closer and for a very short span of time 2-3 seconds. No noise, disturbance, or heat was generated.

First I thought it was a shooting star, but from what I know we used to spot shooting stars in the months of September and October. The strange flash of light was observed in the western skies of Gurgaon city, in Haryana State India. The aeroplanes flying at the hour did not seem to be affected and were at great distance.

I would also like to state that there is a business corridor near our house but all shut down and there were no lasers lights which is pretty common these days in Gurgaon.

Gurgaon : latitude 28°27'N longitude 77°01'E.
