The sky just suddenly brightened like lightning (a little flickering a couple of times, a cloudy evening but couldn't help noticing) then I saw a bright light whose direction was down and the event was quickly over, no sound was heard. Direction approx. Turku-Uusikaupunki. In one of our surveillance cameras, a small flash was seen. from the event
