>> A local radio station's phone lines lit up Thursday morning
>> after motorists reported seeing a mysterious flash of light
>> in the sky, Local 4 reported.
>> Several drivers in the area of Interstate 275 and Interstate 94
>> called into WOMC radio at about 5:45 a.m. to report an
>> unidentified light flashing in the sky.
>> "It was a bright flash, almost like a huge flashlight, almost
>> like a generator going off," said one caller.
>> The host of the radio station's morning show, Dick Purtan, said
>> he had no answer to what people had witnessed in the sky.
>> "The first thing that I thought of was that this was possibly
>> the asteroid, this big rock that's about 3 miles long and a
>> mile-and-a-half wide that actually came within a million miles
>> of earth this morning, but the trouble is they say that it's
>> not visible," Purtan said.
>> Officials at the Selfridge Air National Guard Base reported no
>> flying this morning, so there were no records or photographs
>> taken that may have identified the flash of light.
>> Metro airport also had no trace of the light flash because the
>> airport's radar readings only cover a 40-mile radius, Local 4
>> reported.
>> The National Weather Service in Cleveland told Local 4 that the
>> mysterious light may have been moonbeams poking through the clouds.
>> Local 4 attempted to contact the North American Aerospace Defense
>> Command, which protects the airspace over the United States and
>> Canada. NORAD had yet to return calls concerning the mysterious
>> light.
