RemarksI was in my jacuzzi and I noticed a blue flash that began in the Northeast and ended slightly downward in the Northwest. It happened within about two to five seconds. It was cloudy out so I couldn't actually see what was going on but it was very clear where the brightest portion of it was. It was drizzling a little bit outside. It was not lightning there was no lightning in the area or anywhere in Florida at that time when I checked. I don't know if I saw a meteor through a cloud deck. It started off bright faded away to almost nothing and then again terminated in a bright flash to the northwest. It was very distinctly into places in the sky.
