Location of Sighting: Stockton on Tees
Date of Sighting: 27th March 2013
Time: about 3am
Witness Name: M
Witness Statement: I just wanted to report a strange event that happened in the early hours of this morning and wondered if anyone else noticed the same thing.
I was awake from about 2.40am for at least an hour or so. I’m guessing this happened at about 3am while I was trying to get back to sleep. There was a very bright, white flash but not like lightning. It was like a bright light that stayed on for about 2 seconds then went off. At the same time all the street lights outside went off as though there was a power cut. There was no thunder and the lights came back on after about 5-6 seconds.
The strange thing was that usually if there’s a power cut our digital clocks are reset and flashing but when I woke up they were showing the correct time. Also the clocks on my oven and heating were not reset either. After a power cut I always have to reset the time on them.
It could have been lightning but it just seemed different and there was no thunder to accompany it (not that unusual though). A short power cut is a possibility but what’s making me feel this is unusual is the bright light first, then the fact that none of the clocks or appliances behaved the way they do when there’s a power outage.
If anyone saw the same thing please add to this. Thanks.
