Location: New York City, NY
Shape: Flash
Duration: 1 second
I was driving home one night at 2:15 am after work with a friend. We were going over the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan and about half way over the bridge we saw a flash in the sky at about the 2 o'clock position in the sky facing east. The closest thing I can think of describing this is a flash of lightning. It was almost like a flash from a camera comming from the middle of the night sky. There were no clouds in te sky, there was no rain or thunder and was'nt hot enough for heat lightning, being that it was alost Thanksgiving.

We both saw this and we were both taken back by this. This did'nt happen again on the drive back to Staten Island that night. We kept looking up in the sky to see if we can see it again. The part of the sky we saw this flash in was not obstucted by apartment buildings or any other structures. This was a clear view off the bridge facing south east.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the incident is approximate. PD))
