Time of Sighting: 2:30 AM PST
Location of Sighting: Edmonds, Washington (See Map)

Description: The entire night sky turned deep blue-green for 2 seconds while I was traveling on I-5 northbound in the vicinity of Edmonds. The sky condition was overcast.

Comments Received February 2, 2011: Several years ago I witnessed nearly the same thing from my home on Bainbridge Island, at about the same time of night, same weather, same duration, but with one difference.
I was lying in bed, unable to sleep, and casually looking at the patch of overcast sky I could see through a window near the bed. Suddenly, like a light being switched on the whole patch of sky turned RED. I thought that it must be the neighbor backing his car out of his drive, but it seemed too bright. Any thought that it was car taillights quickly vanished when the light abruptly turned GREEN! I leapt out of bed just fast enough to see that it covered the entire sky I could see from that window, which faced west. I had the impression that it was not coming in through some nearby windows facing north, but I do not consciously recall looking out them. Suddenly, the light went away and everything looked normal.
I do not think this was a dream, because I recall standing at the window looking at the green clouds for a second or so, and then continuing to stand there for perhaps 5 minutes to see if it happened again. Then I went downstairs to the kitchen to get a glass of juice or something and then came back up to bed, so I think I was awake the whole time. Strangely enough this was after I watched an evening TV show about solar mega-storms that lit up the night sky so I was worried I might have been dreaming, but I think the sequence of events says otherwise.

The most striking thing about the phenomenon was the instantaneous "switch" on, change of colors, and switch off. Everything was as if it was done by someone flipping a switch: snap - snap - snap. I have seen greenish meteors, and auroras too, but this had a completely different "feel" to it - very artificial.
