Duration:60-90 seconds
On 8/19/2014, at approx 1:30-1:45am, my son and I noticed what looked like an extremely bright and very low shining star. It was unusually bright and 10-15 seconds later, it appeared to start spinning, as it looked as if it was getting brighter, which went on for approximately 1 more minute and then it got really bright and started glowing really, really bright and it began to move in a short zig zag pattern.

At this point, it was extremely bright, and looked like it had some how powered up, which is the only way I know how to explain it, and it took off and was gone.

We looked for it for about a minute more until it actually sunk in that we had no idea as to what it was and went inside after my son got scared.

Neither my son or myself had ever seen anything like this before.

A little after 02:00 am, a rain storm came and had severe lightning like we had never seen before. We were surprised to wake up in the morning and see that we still had power. I am sure that it was a coincidence, but it is definitely note worthy.
