Hi everyone my name is Jacob and something very weird happened to my friend, his grandfather and myself. I have wondered what could have caused this phenomenon and I will explain it the best I can. I am not of the opinion that this is an alien encounter or anything to that effect I am looking for the best explanation I can get. Due to the nature of the phenomenon I thought a physics forum would be my best shot for an answer. Ok so here's the story: My friend Garret, his Grandpaw "Pawpaw'' and myself were driving down a dirt road for around 45 minutes in that time the sun had risen (it was morning time) so it had gone to dark to morning light outside and we were in the woods if that makes a difference. So around 45 minutes down this dirt road and keep in mind we are out to hunt and fish we are 45 minutes on a dirt road in a wooded area so there are no (apparent) cell phone towers etc in the area and all of the sudden this blinding electric blue light comes down (you could see it come down it wasn't an instant event but it was very fast but perceivably fast) and I couldn't see my friend garret sitting in front of me or my own hand for that matter and then within around a second the light had gone and the vehicle continued to move down the road so at first we all three asked each other if we saw it and we confirmed for each other we all did and we immediately stopped the truck and looked in the sky and around the truck - there was nothing in the sky not even a cloud, no plane, no anything at all. What's odd about this is we all saw it and there was no evident cause of the blue light, it moved slow I would think light appearing should be instant but you could barely see it engulf your vision from top to bottom. I thought maybe it was a gamma-ray burst or some type of cosmic radiation but I just don't know. I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this but I figured it's my best shot. Thank you.
