A large, fleeting flash of light that appeared in the darkened skies over the northwestern edge of metropolitan Phoenix remains a mystery.

The ball of light that looked like an explosion was captured by a traffic camera on Interstate 17 around 4:45 a.m. Thursday and happened to be broadcast by KSAZ-TV when the station showed footage of the roadway during a report on the morning's commute.

The two electric utilities that serve metro Phoenix say they didn't have any reports of electric transformer explosions that might explain the flash.

Damon Gross, a spokesman for Arizona Public Service, says a blown fuse on a transformer can produce a flash, but he said the utility had no such report Thursday morning.

"It's a mystery to us as well. I can't even offer a guess," said Doug Nintzel, a spokesman for the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Maybe that bright light was Georgio's tanning bed exploding? Dude needs to knock that stuff off, or is he auditioning for Jersey Shore?

Once people get on TV who knows what goes through their mind. He seems to have evolved from one episode to the next. He gets tanner and his hairdo gets more outrageous.

That's true, I guess there are bigger issues there than tanning. :laugh:

There was one episode where he was suddenly much darker. I remember mentioning it here, actually.

Guys, guys...it was me. Sorry for the hype. I didn't think they could see that all the way here from Minnesota. I lit my fart with a lighter.
