    My Dad lives out there. Maybe he was lighting farts again. Since Mom passed, he gets mighty bored.

    Guess I'll at least post the video here. I have no idea what it was if it's not lightning:

    Given that its night and given how bright the car headlights are, I would say the flash doesn't have to be an explosion at all.

    Interesting the power companies reported no issues because that was my first thought...maybe just a phase to phase flash with no outage?

    That looks like a low light level camera so it might have really been that big of a flash.

    Looks like an electrical flash. Next really windy night keep your eyes on the horizon, primary distribution voltages create a heck of an arc when the lines get together and go phase to phase or phase to ground. Causes include car pole accidents, falling tree limbs and failed equipment. Stormy nights there is a higher volume of these incidents.
