Just days away from the mysterious "Phoenix Lights" 15th anniversary, a local FOX TV affiliate cut to a live traffic report web cam just as a bright flash of light exploded on the screen. What was it?

Despite being witnessed by everyone watching the live report, Phoenix officials haven't been able to identify what caused the blast.An explosion that big should have been reported and heavy damage would be expected. How is that possible?

As someone pointed out, it starts off at full size then decreases which is the opposite of an explosion.

Don't know, I kind of doubt it being shopped. It's a lot more work to edit a video than it is a picture. You have to go frame by frame. There really wasn't anything UFO related in the vid, why would somebody shop an explosion into it? But then again, maybe it's some kids school project for a visual effects class or something.  :tu:

The normal speed footage clearly shows a short-duration light expanding from and then contracting back to a source; the cam is also probably suffering from after image of the flash.  Compared with the headlights of the vehicles it isn't that bright.
This really shouldn't take much investigating locally.

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?

Phoenix metro area is a very large and densely populated complex of several cities. I would hazard a guess that a vehicle struck an electrical pole and the transformer or related arcing caused the flash. This would be localized, likely get repaired very quickly, and not raise curiosity levels sufficiently to cause undue notice. Moreover, each one of these cities has sophisticated response centers that would be activated if the incident was of consequence.

I was being sarcastic and clearly it wasn't a explosion there would be some type of reports from someone.
