I was packing my vehicle at dawn. A large bright light appeared from behind a row of trees from direction NNW at approx. 40 degree to the horizon…passes at great speed overhead toward SE and disappeared after 2 seconds.
The altitude was low enough to disturb my peripheral vision.
I called my wife and child to comment on the sighting at which point we gazed in the departure direction to view a number of intermittent “lightening like explosions reflected from under and approach cloud bank SW direction.
To our amazement; Bright white mixed with crimson reflections were observed.
The light appeared circular and very bright…what perplexes me is the speed it traveled from horizon to the opposite side…in silence???
