Location: Provo, UT
Shape: Flash
Duration: ~1 hour
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Rapid strobe-like flashes behind clouds in the night sky.

Around 22:00 MDT a lightning storm began. At around 22:40 MDT, rapid flashes in the sky started to appear that I could see from an east-facing window on the second floor of my home. It looked like flashes of light in the clouds, blinking extremely fast like a strobe for a few seconds then stopping, at 3-4 minute intervals between flashes. They seemed to be behind the thick layer of clouds that covered most of the sky. I noticed that the television screens in my house seemed to become fuzzier during the rapid flashes. I spoke to my companion who was on the ground floor who had also seen these flashes from her west-facing window.

The rapid flashes slowly got more rare, and came to a complete stop at around 23:30.
