Observer
NameCyndy K
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving to work on a rural Ohio highway. The flash of light lit up the inside of my car. I initially thought it was lightning until I got to work and spoke to a coworker who was driving at the same time, from the opposite direction and some distance away. I thought it odd that we had the same experience at the same time while being so far away from each other.
