Full Description of event/sighting: Last night, Tuesday, January 20th, 2009, I was riding with my wife in Tarpon Springs, Pinellas County, Florida. We were facing west driving just east of US19. I saw a bright, almost neon blue flash in the sky, high above the clouds which stretched from as far left as I could see to as far right as I could see.

There was sporadic cloud cover but the flash illuminated the sky for 3-5 seconds. I have since wrote my friends, wrote my local news program tip line ( and have not seen anywhere else that another sole saw this flash. That is until I googled and saw reports of a similar incident last week in Indianapolis. There were trees far in front of me and far to the right and left so I could not see any main stream of light extending to the ground as reported in Indianapolis. What I saw, however, was the entire sky above the clouds to my west (I was driving west) illuminate for 3-5 seconds in such a bright and beautiful deep blue.
