Temecula is in Southern California, and today was very odd because it snowed last night.
We drove up to a small mountain range off of Hwy 15, parked, and my wife two small kids and I were playing in the snow (a ~4" blanket of snow was on everything). There were scattered houses in the area, each on 5-15 acres.
After about 10 minutes of playing/pictures, I was looking at the nearest house, that was about 1/4 mile away, when I noticed a rectangular blue sheet rise out of a small grove of fruit trees near the house. The sheet appeared to be about 6' x 12' and was semi-transparent and oscillating...it looked like a thin sheet of blue fire (it moved much like fire would). Before it cleared the tree-line, a very bright whitish flash emanated from the top and it was gone.
My wife happened to be looking in the same general direction, she saw the bright flash (but did not witness the blue sheet). The final flash was as bright as lightning.
The entire incident was silent and lasted about 3 seconds. I have heard of "Sheet lightening" but this doesn't fit the description. This was very, very odd, out of place, and nothing like I have every seen before...it seemed out of this world.
