Several webcams installed on Breton beaches recorded a flash of light making “the day come back” for a few seconds at 11:47 pm.

A flash of light lit the sky over Brittany for a few seconds, around 11:50 p.m., on the night of Sunday 5 to Monday 6 September, reports France Bleu Breizh Izel. At the same time, a luminous object crossed the sky off the port of Southampton, England, suggesting a meteorite.

“On the side of Brest and the North Coast” of Finistère, this flash of light was accompanied by a “big explosion”, according to the testimony of Gurvan Musset, director of France Bleu Breizh Izel. At 11:47 p.m., the webcam of the port of Portsall, in Ploudalmézeau, shows the suddenly illuminated sky. Several pleasure boats become visible as in broad daylight, whereas they were previously plunged in total darkness.

The mysterious flash of light visible even in Morbihan! Here, the video from the webcam overlooking Le Bono, not far from Auray and Vannes. It gives us the exact time of the flash: 23h46 and 59s! #Brittany #Finistere

The phenomenon has also been visible in Morbihan. The Bono harbor webcam shows it going from darkness to light, again at 11:47 pm.
