Bright Flash

Time Distortions


JANUARY 31, 2020

My husband and I were driving down to southern Utah, part-way into a four-hour drive. It was already dark out, but not very late, and we were on the long stretch of highway in the middle of nowhere Utah. All of a sudden we both saw a bright flash of light in our rearview mirrors without anyone being behind us, there was some sort of blur in time and we just kept going as normal. The only way I can describe it is seeing the flash of light, and time slowed down, then skipped ahead as if we had both woken up from a nap, only we hadn’t really traveled much further on the road. At first, I had thought I had just hallucinated it until my husband asked if I had seen the flash too.
