Trinity, Alabama Bright Flash Followed By A Boom

Location of Sighting: Western sky.
Number of witnesses: 4

Shape of objects: N/A.

Full Description of event/sighting: First of all, our home is surrounded by trees. While eating lunch my husband and I noticed an odd electrical colored flash that occurred from our kitchen window which faces west. It was then followed by a boom.

The nearest way to describe it was similar to a lightning flash. I looked out to see if there was a traffic accident on the highway beyond our trees. Later in the day, we spoke with my husband's parents that live east of us by a tenth of a mile and they said the grandkids that were with them had seen the flash too and asked what happened. Their windows face north toward the same highway that passes North of our house. I feel sure that folks that were traveling the highway would have seen that flash, considering it was noticeable from inside two houses, especially since our home is shielded within trees. We thought it might have been some sort of electrical power line problem, but that shouldn't have been bright enough to be noticed inside two separate homes from different angles. We have underground power and the nearest overhead power lines are about 300 feet beyond our trees. The flash was not lights in the house blinking.

The highway connects Decatur and Moulton Alabama from east and west. The name of the highway is Gordon Terry Parkway. The flash of light occurred about halfway between the towns. My husband described it similar to the flash you see when someone takes your photo, except it was accompanied by a boom. The weather was clear and sunny, so it was not lightning.

I did a Google search today and noticed a local news team had reported on a young man seeing something strange in Decatur recently, that involved the military and an ambulance. He described the object inside the ambulance like a large pearl. This was reported on WAFF news from Huntsville, Alabama. This video of WAFF interviewing him, is posted on Youtube. The news media introduced the segment questioning a UFO sighting. I missed the local news that day, so this is the first I am aware of this report.

Huntsville, Alabama is a major aerospace industry town, as well as the location of Redstone Arsenal. I am speculating that yesterday's flash could have been related to military exercises.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
