This one definitely will appear on the video-rate webcams

details should follow.
I was northbound on I-17, a couple of miles north of Sunset Point when
the sky brightened a bit, then within a second or two the intensity
increased such that I could see the horizon all the way across my field
of view. I knew from the timing that it couldn't be a lightning strike
(never mind that I had been looking at Lyra to the west just a few
minutes prior), and the only other source beside a bolide which came to
mind was a transformer explosion.
Of course, the whole thing was evidently overhead or behind me, so I
didn't see any part of the actual object directly. Sure lit up the sky,
It will be interested to see what the triangulation shows.
