I was sitting in bed last night. It was late, like 1:30 am. I was reading. I glanced out the window and--I kid you not--the sky lit up. Only very briefly, slightly longer than a lightning flash. But it wasn't lightning. The first flash was bright yellow, followed immediately by red. I didn't hear any sound. This sufficiently creeped me out. I don't know, maybe I was seeing things. It was pretty late. But I'm pretty sure I saw those two flashes, yellow, red, in quick succession.

On a lighter note, check out this hilarious Flash movie. (Yes, the characters are all inanimate objects with clocks for faces. If you've visited Newgrounds a lot, you'll understand.)

I don't know what the flashes were....but you do have an Orthodox church just across the street from you. Did you hear them singing loudly last night...uh...a little earlier than 1:30 am? You'll also be able to hear them singing tonight at about midnight. If they're doing things right. :-)

Irene and I heard some faint booms Sat. night about that time. Didn't see anything, though.

Google Earth says the crowfly distance is 10.6 miles.

Theory 1
it might have been red and then yellow lightning (Lightning can be White, blue, yellow, purple, red, or orange).

Theory 2
Somebody was doing fireworks.

Theory 3
there was a temporal rift in the time-space continuum. (not likely)
