I was watching out the window for daughter to come home from her date and seen a large, bright streak of light flash in the sky. It was brighter and larger than any star. At first I thought it was a meteor but I kept watching in the area which it appeared. We are between airports and see planes all day and all night. It was a very clear night and we see so many stars at our location on our mini farm. It flashed five times about thirty seconds to two minutes apart at different locations but in a tight pattern. The light flashes like itís spinning from left to right and moving very slowly. There was an absence for about fifteen to twenty minutes.

During the absence, two planes had crossed in the sky and a bright flash of light like an explosion had appeared with flaming debris falling from that spot but the planes kept moving in their own directions without pause. My daughter arrives home with her boyfriend and I explained to them what I saw. They started to watch the sky with me and saw that it had moved North West of us. They were witness to the last two flashes in the other location. This was all taking place in a forty-five minute span.
