Here's a bunch of posts who have seen GREEN skyflashes three of which also say that electrical disruption also occurred at the same time.
Last night i looked out my window and every so often the sky would flash green for maybe a second or two. This pretty much happened all night until sunrise. No sound of thunder either. However my tv turned on and off a couple times.
On Monday, January 20, 1997 I woke up before sunrise. About 7:00 a.m. I noticed a flash outside, then I looked more closely and it looked like the sky was blinking at irregular intervals-blinks at different locations in the sky. It was cloudy, and the temperature had changed from below zero readings the night before to the 20's that morning. I wondered if it could be the aurora borealis or heat lightning, but it didn't really seem like either of those phenomena. When I asked my colleague, the earth science teacher, he said he had heard of this before sunrise phenomenon but had never observed it himself and didn't know the cause. Since it was a school holiday, apparently none of my students observed this amazing sight. It was a totally cool sight! Can anyone explain what caused this?
Did anyone else see this?? I was driving home from the city this evening, about 7:00 and as I passed through the Orinda/Lafayette area the WHOLE sky lit up a greenish blue for a second or two. I thought it was lightning at first but then it happened again twice...no thunder, no lighting bolt. Did something blow up in the hills? My first thought was that maybe the Martinez shell plant blew up but I cant find anything in the news...
That green flash across the sky on Sunday evening...
By sheer freakish luck, I happened to have seen it. For a while, my heart sank as my ears braced for an explosion. Fortunately, by now, we can safely conclude that it wasn't an aircrash. Whatever it was, it travelled quite slowly, slow enough for my wife to catch a glimpse in the anticipated direction of travel when the object re-emerged after being blocked by some flats. It definitely travelled slower than a meteor. The best way I can describe it is that, it looked like an unusually large ball of fireworks stuff, constantly disintegrating as it moves southwards. No photograph though. Just chipping in my 2 cents worth, desperately hoping to hear the truth about this "UFO".
Freaky, on the 8th January 2008, in Nottinghamshire (England) about 8.45 at night me and friends all over the county witnessed the sky light up bright green for about 5seconds and then again for about 2 seconds. Scared everyone as the power grid went down twice, but there has been no reports of any electrical damage to any sub stations or transformers. There was just silence and no noise what so ever. Just keen to find out where you witnessed it as your account seems very similar.
I'm glad someone else has seen this as I thought I was going mad. Whilst driving home from work tonight ( 9th Jan 08) at around 5.50pm I saw the whole sky flash green suddenly...with no noise also. The street lamps cut out and then flickered back on. Really strange. This was on the A31 west bound in Dorset.
The aurora which have DIFFERENT colours to skyflashes and UFO reports.
SKYFLASHES CAN'T BE METEORS OR LIGHTNING SO DON'T POST TO SUGGEST SO!! (Not that you'll listen)
