|On February 15th, while traveling west on interstate 90 near Ashtabula, OH. Mile marker 226, around 5:35 am, I witnessed the a strange blue light illuminate the sky to my northwest twice within a two minute time span.
The conditions were light rain and snow mix with a low cloud ceiling. Suddenly the sky illuminated with a bright brilliant blue flash, similar to lightning. Then about two minutes later came another brilliant blue flash.
From the direction of the light it appeared to have possibly originated over Lake Erie. I've been an OTR truck driver for 21 years with experience in all conditions, and have never seen anything like what I witnessed this morning.
Hopefully someone can help explain what it was I saw. Or maybe someone else saw the same thing as I did. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and we found him to be seemingly eloquent and serious-minded. We suspect that he is a quite reliable witness. PD))
