Recently released footage shows the moment the skies over Bethel, Ohio suddenly lit up in multiple colors.
According to reports, the phenomenon, which took the form of a series of bright multicolored flashes, occurred without warning just before 7pm on January 12th.

One witness, Tim Walker, managed to capture the spectacle on his doorbell cam.

"Anybody else see this tonight ?" he wrote on Facebook.

"The sky was flashing pink and purple - super bright. Thought it might be lightning, but it's fairly cold (40 degrees), and there was no thunder... It was crazy - super bright."

His daughter, who was also there at the time, told reporters that the event had scared her.

"I thought it was an explosion when I first saw it, so it made me really nervous," she said.
Elsewhere, several other people in the area also wrote about witnessing the phenomenon.

"So many people are posting about it in Bethel and Amelia," said resident April Pierce. "Some people said their power even flickered on and off."

Another witness, Kat Carmosino, even reported vibrations and a strange humming sound.

"We were in between Amelia and New Richmond, when the power went out there was the light show," she said. "The floor was vibrating and there was a humming noise. It was really odd."

So far however, no explanation for the phenomenon has been found.

It looks man made to me.  It would not be hard with the right equipment and if tapped in to the power grid at the right place it could cause the power outage.

The Native Americans and settlers reported these kinds of lights and hums in the years prior to the New Madrid earthquakes. These types of lights were also seen during and around the time of the earthquakes. I have seen earthquake lights during the Northridge earthquake in California.

Found this on the Ohio history site. So, earthquake lights and a small rumbler might be the cause. Earthquakes. ... Most of these events have been small, in the 2 to 3 magnitude range, but at least 15 earthquakes centered in the state have caused damage. The largest earthquake in Ohio occurred on March 9, 1937, in western Ohio in the Shelby and Auglaize Counties area.

But was an earthquake reported on this night?  And how do you explain the electricity going off, a small earthquake would not cause that.  I think it is a man made "event".

Amelia and Bethel are 9 miles apart. Clermont county has a several power and generating plants just a few miles to the west of both those cities along the river. https://www.countyoffice.org/oh-clermont-county-power-plant/ It does indeed sound like a power plant especially with the lights flickering and the colors described. https://www.mapquest.com/us/ohio/amelia-oh-282025562
