Full Description of Event/Sighting: This is to report a strange phenomena rather than an object. About 9:30 pm, a bright light lit up the sky for ~ 2 seconds. It was almost as bright as daylight. We expected some noise but did not hear any sound. As far away as St. Anthony the same "lightening" was reported. That is a distance of 400 miles (700 km from St. John's). Because of local cloud cover it has been widely interpreted as very bright lightening somewhere.

However, my son is a pilot and he was just leaving St. Anthony at the time. Because he was still in cloud, he saw only the flash. Other pilots above the clouds interrupted in very colorful language by asking "did you see that"?

Their description was: There was a large explosion of light, circular in shape with a black hole in the middle. It lasted only seconds. There was no noise. It was high in the sky. The light was seen over a distance of hundreds of miles by thousands of people. It was well above the clouds and only a few pilots above the clouds could see the shape of this phenomena.
