Reports Report 5339f (Event 5339-2017)

This report has been linked to the following event: Event 5339-2017
Observer
NameShawn M
Experience Level4/5
RemarksPlease note: Weather was broken-overcast @ approx 2500AGL when an small area of clouds flared with a blue/white flash, I did not see a fireball but it didn’t look like lightning or a static discharge (there were no thunderstorms anywhere on radar in Oklahoma) I am a retired USAF pilot with an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate and the “event” did not look like aircraft lights illuminating the clouds either (too bright, too fast and wrong color). I’m not sure what a meteor would look like through the clouds never having seen such a thing myself, but I am hoping others might have seen the “event” from a different location with clearer skies. Hopefully this report will not waste anyone’s time. V/R Shawn
