Flash in the whole sky - Central Texas
My husband called me this morning around 7:20am.
He asked "have you been watching the news or anything?" His voice was pretty shaky. I asked him what was wrong/what happened.

He said they just got on location in Flatonia, TX ( oilfield) and were getting out of the truck (about 7:05am) , when there was an extremely bright flash in the sky. A camera like flash in the entire sky. He and all of his 4 crew members saw it.

His boss who was just driving into location was on the phone with another tool pusher on a location 3 hours away in centerville tx. When the tool pusher parked, he jumped out of the truck and asked them if they saw it. He said while he was on the phone, the other pusher said " WTF" as he saw it too.

When I was leaving my kids at Daycare I heard two moms talking about it, one saw it on a jog, in Bryan, TX.


Any idea what could cause something like that that could be seem in that big of a radius?

Re: Flash in the whole sky - Central Texas
Question: Even though the timing seems a little off, could the flash from the "meteor" have been reflected some how in fog to make it appear as though the flash was in the whole sky?

Pinned to get collaboration from other GLPrs.

Does this have any connection to the flaming electrical poles, the power outage & the allegedly censored solar data?


Okay, GLP, let's get to the bottom of this!

Thread: Green flash in the sky, followed by red trail? Houston, Tx

I was having a cigarette when I saw a green flash behind me, I turned around and saw a medium sized red streak in the sky that dissipated quickly.

What the fuck..

lol I love when there are a bunch of little detectives out in the "field" working on these theories! It brings some excitement to my day as we try to analyze and rationalize the data! :)

Hopefully it won't be anything too serious!

Roughly Same place where phone poles caught fire in 5 counties then.

That would have been from the oil in the transformers heating up by some weird means.

Nothing to see here, just another "meteor" .


That excuse is about used up I think. If it was such a non-event, you think people would have been used to it by now ????

Re: Flash in the whole sky - Central Texas
Do a search in GLP for past events. Last year I saw a HUGE bright flash in the night sky, facing South, in the same night CERN was doing some shit. A guy in Germany saw it too.

This year, last month, saw another one at night, facing WEST, and all sky was WHITE for one/two seconds, like a gigantic camera took a picture with flash - imagine a guy outside our planet taking a picture to an apple, or something that small.

So yeah, this is not new, it's ongoing for some time now, and for those of us who work at night (and smoke cigars outside) it's nothing new, really.

I bet more people have seen this, and think "wow, thats a huge lightning" - but often this shit happens in clear nights, no clouds...

Re: Flash in the whole sky - Central Texas
Wow my first pin and 5*!

Thanks.

I saw about the meteor before i posted this, but the timing my husband gave me is about 20 minutes after the sighting.

Im just hoping for some sort of explanation. He is the biggest skeptic i know. Thinks I am crazy, but hearing him as freaked out as he was really freaks me out!

I've been theorizing that all the booms that people hear are explosions of escaping methane gas, but if that was so, someone should also be reporting a big boom to go with this big flash.

This sounds closer to what he says he saw. Just a big flash in the sky, like lighting or a camera flash, but incredibly bright.

Shows a picture just of the sky just after the flash.


From McKinney to the White Rock Lake area and all the way south to Houston, a bright flash reported in the sky Friday morning captured the attention of many across the Lone Star State.

One McKinney woman reported seeing what appeared to be a comet streaking across the sky in a bright flash around 6:42 a.m. near Stonebridge Shopping Center.

Justin Wagoner, who lives in the White Rock Lake area, said he saw a green trail and heard a large "sonic boom" around the same time. Others reported seeing white and orange colors. The sight only lasted a few seconds before vanishing in the sky.
