Reports Report 914z (Event 914-2018)

Name Michael J
Experience Level 5/5
Remarks Your automatic data gathering did not allow me to specify that all my visual observations came off my outside security camera. It faces due north. Only after the event did I go back and replay the recorded video to see three distinct flashes reflected off the water of the lake I live on. We had an overcast sky that night. My video, which was date/time stamped indicated the first flash occurred at 1705:27 with 1 second intervals between the next two pulses of light. The color of the light being filtered through cloud layer of unknown thickness (broken layer or ceiling) could not be determined. My outdoor camera switches to B/W at night.
