Shape: Flash
Duration:3 seconds
Two intense flashes of light that looked liked transformers blowing.

I am a local Indiana Truck Driver. I and a co-worker who is our company's safety officer were driving south bound on I-465 at, or around, mile marker 43, when we both saw an intense flash of light at the horizon line that looked to be no more then 300 meters ahead of us. We saw two flashes, and brake lights were everywhere on the freeway at the time.

My passenger and I thought it was a transformer that blew, or some massive electrical issue with the power lines, but once we got to where we thought we could see the flashes coming from, there was no sign of any power outage. It was very peculiar. Two very intense flashes of light that resembled balls of electricity.
