Okay, so here's a little background about the house this experience happened in. (It was one of many unsettling ones.) This house is an old farmhouse out in the country and it's somewhat secluded. It was built sometime in the 1800's and was added on to in the 1970's. It is also in between 2 cemeteries, which are each over a hundred, maybe two hundred years old. In the fall of 2010 we started renovating it and it was still being worked on in the summer of the following year. I was staying there with my dad one night in the summer of 2011, and it was around 3:00 AM. I couldn't sleep because the house creeps me out big time. I was lying on the couch trying to relax when I heard a pop followed by a flash coming from the garage. I was kind of spooked. Then there were 3 more noises (LOUD bangs this time) followed by flashes so bright they lit up the living room (and they were visible through the heavy drapes on the window in there)! I got scared. It wasn't lightning and thunder because it wasn't storming that night, and it wasn't electricity related because the electricity to the garage was shut off due to the light fixtures being replaced. The next day I looked on the side of the garage and there were no burn marks or any indication that the explosion happened. So my question is, could it have been paranormal? I'm a big believer in the paranormal too, by the way. Thanks. :)

Bangs and flashes  = hunters.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Sounds like heat lightning. Happens sometimes.
But since you "believe" in the paranormal I guess my mundane suggestions will mean nothing.

Sounds like old timey photography going on?

Why is the house between two cemetaries? Was it a funeral home, or are these cemetaries small family plots?

Yep, 2 cemetries on either side of a secluded farmhouse and they are 100 years old, maybe 2, how many people lived near there and how big is the nearest town, which generally have their cemetaries located in the town, not in a secluded area.
Also as the heavy drapes were drawn, how coud you possibly tell the flashes came from the garage? A flash of light from outside could have come from anywhere, plus you were lying on the couch resting so I can not see how you could tell which direction the first one came from.

Something does not sound quite right here, am I detecting another one of those fishing for views on a story?

What you describe could've been a strange phenomena called ball lightning.
Here's some info about it. Link on ball lightning

Did you not go out and investigate? If I'd heard and saw that coming out of my garage I'd have grabbed the nearest baseball bat and gone out there and looked!

I used to believe that ... but the noises and sounds at cemeteries at night ... well ... you;d have to be there to believe it ... though I think that might only apply to tropical jungle countries such as where I am ...
