At approximately 1:30AM on Sept 22,2015. I was helping my neighbor look for his missing cat. As we stood on the road in our heavily wooded area discussing the cat, the sky lite up with an incredibly bright, bluish/white light. It was bright enough that it illuminated the entire area(woods, road, lake) and reflected off of the windows and chrome of my vehicle. Immediately after the 1-2 second flash, we both looked at each other anticipating a boom or explosion, similar to a blown power transformer, but there was no sound. This may seem very uneventful, but the intensity and clarity was immense.
