So I'm sitting outside under my patio, at around 2:20am. My view consists of looking forwards at the ocean, right to the side of my house (under the patio), and left across the lawn to a fence, on the opposite side of which is my neighbors yard. I lean out a bit and look to the left, just observing the night scene of course, and I see a white flash. It was about 15 feet up, so a few feet higher than the fence. It wasn't lightning, it was a clear night and the centre of the flash seemed to come from a one foot wide object, radiating out ofc.
What the hell was that even?? A flash from nowhere, no sound, no movement anywhere? I'm obviously back inside now but what the hell? I thought to myself "are robbers using a camera flash to see if the coast is clear? I've been out here 10 or so minutes, maybe they're surveying the scene" or someshit. So confused.
