I just had an odd, unexplained experience. i came home after dark and went outside to my back deck to turn on a light so that i could take the dogs out. as i rounded the corner there was a very close, bright flash of red light accompanied by a sound that i could only describe as a muted whip. it was as if something was out there and i startled it so it shut down. it made the hair on the back of neck stood on end for a few minutes. i live in the country where it is very dark and this light and sound cannot be explained by anything in the natural surroundings. also, this flash of light occurred within 15 feet of where i was standing.
