Reported By: R. W.
There was a quite bright ‘blue/white explosion like’ event in the western sky, it was about 40-60 degrees up and lasted about 3 seconds.
The best description I can give is… it was similar to the flash from the star-trek engines only much more ‘blueish’ in color.
I saw it directly ahead of me, my friend who was sitting next to me, saw it from the corner of his eye. This just after midnight on Sept 12, 2000.
