Northwest Calgary, Alberta Witness Feels The Heat From A Bolt Of Lightning

Date: June 14, 2007
Time: 12:14 a.m.

Location of Sighting: Northwest Calgary.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Lightning.

Full Description of event/sighting: It was a cloudless night at the time and I had just stepped out to have a smoke before I go to bed when it happened. Right in plain sight this orange lightning shot across the sky, several bolts from a point, to a point, then retracing back thicker and shaped like a horse-shoe. The lightning made no sound of a boom. I could feel the heat on my face. I've heard of ball lightning and I know that this isn't that, lightning in a cloudless sky? The next day I see the inverted shape of it in my eyes, like when you look at a light for too long and stare away and you get the negative imprint in your eyes. It seems to have gone away now 24 hours later but it still has shaken me up a bit. I need to know if anyone else saw this to confirm my sane-ness. Thank you.

Thank you to the witness for the really interesting report.
