I saw something very similar from my house in Venice Beach, California. It was 4:00am Friday morning, September 23, 2011. I woke up to a sudden wind that was unbelievably strong. When I got out of bed to calm my puppies down I looked north towards Santa Monica and saw this bright blue flash of light. It filled the sky. Would love to know what it was.

It was Thursday December 15th 2011 in Sacramento at around 6:30 pm and I was driving home from work facing north and all of the sudden a huge blue flash of light just lit up the sky. It was hard to tell how far away it was but it sure caught my attention. I have never seen anything like it.

Yeah, we were driving south on hwy 99 from yuba city towards sacramento, about 5:10 and saw a bright white center flash, with a bluish hue surrounding it then it seemed to explode at about a forty five degree angle in a sort o disk formation. Like looking at a hubble space photograph for a split second then it quickly dissipated. Not sure if I was looking at smoke, or just low clouds since it was pretty foggy coming into work this morning.

A quick Google search shows that people have been reporting seeing these blue flashes all across the country recently. I personally have not witnessed it, but it sounds very interesting. Government testing something maybe, or possibly something to do with the solar storms??

I am the one that started this post and I have not seen one of the blue flash things again. The first one was strange and I do not care to see another one. Some people have told me it could have came from a transformer that went out, I am not sure if that would make such a big strange flash that could be seen from a long ways away. and why would it look blue and sit way up in the sky for a bit like a soft glowing shield and then go away without any fire or something burring at the bottom, on the ground. I just think that if something went out, blew up, there would be a fire on the ground still. I could be wrong but I do not know!

I do not believe it was any type of transfomer blowing. It was too far up in the sky and it didnt just "blow". I read that it was seen as far away as Monterey CA. They (the science guys) say it was a "fireball".

I was driving east on Dillard Rd from Hwy 99 and saw the big blue flash between 0515 and 0525am. It was too big to be a transformer, this light up the whole horizon.

I live in Dixon as well, and saw this happen last night (4.24.13) at 12:35am. It was bright enough to turn off all of the street lights, and close enough that I could hear what sounded like a piece of plywood falling down followed by a gibbering mumbling sound from the sky where it happened.

I was in coming from Marysville, seen a blue light like a spot light from a distance then as we got closer it was over the freeway hovering we got so close we drove under the light, I was already sticking my head out the window , my friend who is driving said I was as blue as the light. We both have never seen it again traveling at later dates. It was a few years ago. Didn't see a shape almost like it was invisible with a bright blue light shooting out.. What is it?

I live in Dixon, and on May 25th at 12:35am there was a VERY bright whitish-blue flash coming from something about 30-50 feet above and behind me. I was leaning against my car parked on the street texting, and when this thing happened I couldn't even see my hand holding the phone less than a foot from my face. As the light went away (took about as long as a bolt of lightning) all of the street lights were out but none of the house lights in any of the houses. In my vision was the burned-in image of my phone and the reflection of what looked like a sphere with veins running around it. There was a sound like a door falling flat on its face, then a second or two later a mumbling sound coming from there. The mumbling sound scared me, and I ran inside. I have developed cataracts in the eye that caught the image of it, and all of the tattoos on my upper body (exposed above the top of the car I was leaning on) faded almost entirely out over a period of a month. I advise that you don't try to get close to one of these, if you can avoid it.
