My boyfriend and I were laying in bed talking about god knows what when suddenly a very bright light flashed in the corner of the room (from my perspective at least.) He says the origin of the light was right next to him about 3 feet away. I saw it occur about 10 feet away and at the foot of the bed. It was as bright as a camera flash but completely silent. It only lasted about a second. We are so confused but intrigued by what we just witnessed! Just wanted to know if anyone had seen the same type of thing before.

Well it could be have been lightening out side lighting up the room (it is possible under certain circumstances for lightning to happen without thunder accompanying it), or a meteor burning up in the atmosphere lighting up the room. Is it possible it could have been a car headlight reflecting off something?

Nope, not a cloud in the sky tonight. Also, not a car. The room was silent and the light exploded into the room instead of pass over the room like headlights. It looked like a camera took a picture of us from inside the closet D:

Well did you check the cupboard for a hidden camera!? A pervert could have hidden one there and set it up wrong and it flashed when it was not meant to.

Other than that, ball  lightning

Slugalug, do you have transformers on poles outside near where you live? Those things can go funny sometimes and throw out a massive bright light.

You guys are funny, I'm glad I found this forum. It was a very bright white light, maybe a little bluish. The nearest pole of any kind is a telephone pole 6 houses away. I was thinking ball lightning also but I thought it could only occur during a storm, yes?

you don't need clouds for lightning to appear, though it is rare ;)

Did you notice anything else strange  at that time? Was there any time you could not account for?

Maybe your boyfriend had a hidden camera in the room set on a timer to flash and to cover his tracks he's acting dumb.

It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve. But to much skepticism can make you arrogant & egotistical.

I am interested to find out what the bright flash of light can be as well.  Myself and 3 others were seated on a deck outside in broad daylight with no storm activity at all.  It was a beautiful bright sunny day and we were seated around a small square table when a bright flash of pure white light engulfed us.  We all were amazed but had no clue as to where it came from.  It did not hurt the eyes nor did I squint, and when it flashed, white is all we could see.  I was waiting on a shock or a bang to come after it, but nothing.  Just the very quick bright as bright can be flash and nothing more.

It's happened to me once.  Outside my house at night, starlit sky no apparent weather activity.  Came from just above the roof of the neighbours house was the nearest I could figure and turned everything completely white. It lasted no more than 2 seconds max.  I don't know what caused it but the amount of reports that are showing up is making me think it is a natural meteorological occurrence of some description that is either becoming more common or really only just being talked about more often due to the net.

The other day I was about to head up stairs when above one of the railing posts at the bottom of the stairs I saw a white light. All I could really gather from it (saw it for about 1 second before I started to climb up the stairs) was it was a white light about the size of a dinner plate, all white with a tint of brownish gold around the edge of the circular part with what appeared to be spikes covering the outside of it. But it wasn't sharp(as in clarity) it was more blurred.
