Does your window face a street or is there a street nearby? Could've been a transformer blowing on a pole nearby... they're bright.

Thanks for replying. I sleep in my bedroom, curtins closed, im on a hill and overlook Houses and fields, no roads with in at least 200 or 300 yards (from the bedroom window) No way it could be camera flashes as my whole room lights up and im too far away from any neighbours that arnt asleep. Its all very quiet no noises at all (no cars, no people etc). Not sure about 'cloud to cloud lightening? Usually not accompanid by thunder but can light up the sky pretty dramtically.' as i dont know anything about it, but i am wake when it starts and it finished soon as i look out the window (before i can...

Wow thanks 'Rafterman' great clip of cloud to cloud lightning, the random flashes etc would explain what i saw. Thanks so much for posting it, i did think it was lightning of some sort but as i didnt hear any thunder i wasnt sure. This would explain it thanks again.

No problem - on of the coolest things I ever saw was a evening flight from NYC to Atlanta where we flew right down the coast. There was this massive storm front along the entire coast and the clouds were lighting up all the way down. It was incredible - until we had to descend through it to land that is.

I live in the semi tropics, and that type of lightning is pretty common here. When it is directly overhead and close (low clouds), you *may* hear the thunder, but if it is further away, either geographically or simply by being in higher clouds, it can be eerily silent, even though still *very* bright, and capable of the effect you described. If not, maybe it's the next door neighbours with a camera flashgun..

I think some folks also call it "heat lightening"

We use to see this all the time in coastal Maine. It is certainly worth a watch.
