|Odd phenomenon green light in sky that caused the power to distort and then fail
I awoke this morning at 2am to some strange static noise coming from the bedroom's intercom, and other strange "electricity"-sounding noises. Immediately out the window from in bed I saw a greenish flickering dim light, which would have seemed as if it were coming from the outside pot lights, if this section of the house had them. I couldn't see the sky. Then, all of a sudden it stopped.
I got up with my flashlight to check the house and see if the alarm was still set, and brother and mom had also been awoken and met in the living room. Brother said he saw the sky and it looked something like Aurora Borealis. The even must have lasted only 60 seconds or less, and it put the power out for an instant. Fifteen minutes later, there were numerous emergency vehicles responding high priority to something up the road from us.
I thought I might find some reference to the short-lived event online, but I haven't had any luck.
