Brooksville Morning Sky
Date: Tuesday October 15, 2013
Location: Lelani Dr & Centralia Rd ( Brooksville, FL )
While driving to work Tuesday morning I observed something very peculiar. I doubt anyone else saw it, this isn't a populated area, it's very rural. I leave for work about 5:15 a.m., so it's still very dark.
I was driving south on Lelani Drive, and just got to the intersection of Centralia Road, about 5:30 a.m., It's a Tee, Centralia runs East & West. I looked to my right, and the sky was lit up behind the clouds... I thought to myself I should stop and get a picture, but figured my phone would let me down for quality. It just looked so cool, I assumed it was the nearly full moon behind the clouds. I turned left on Centralia drove maybe half a mile, and I'll be damned if the sky didn't light up in the exact same way. Looking just as awesome as it looked to the west moments before. I couldn't tell in my rearview mirror if it was still lit, I have a dark tint in the rear window. The lit sky stayed lit traveling east until I made a turn onto Sunshine Grove Road.
It made me realize what I originally thought was the moon, Wasn't. And it made me sorry I didn't take a picture either of the 2 chances I had. Because I can't find anything online similar enough to do what I saw justice. Here is something I pieced together with Irfan View. The Bright area isn't nearly bright enough, but it's the best I could do.
Like I say, the chances of anyone else seeing this are very slim, But maybe someone else saw something close to this in their life. Ifso..let me know please.
