I was on my third floor deck with my mate and looking straight at jupiter facing se. i sky-watch every night when i go out to smoke. there were some scattered clouds, but none immediately around jupiter and it’s travel companion spica. i had noticed a hole in the clouds in this general area several times earlier in the day, as if something kept punching a distinctly round hole in them. it was curious enough that i took pictures, as it didn’t seem natural. it was within another of these ‘cloud holes’ that jupiter was observed. while staring at it, a very brief lightning like flash in a clear cut ovoid shape flashed to the slightly upper right of jupiter and spica. because i had been staring in the dark, the shape of the flash imprinted on my retinas, and i could see it’s distinct, sharp edged shape for several seconds. it was slightly larger than my fist at arm’s length. my mate had his back turned, but caught my reaction, which was a loud “what the h_l was that !!! it was definitely not lightning, definitely not a spotlight, as it was not projected onto a cloud, but rather appeared in the one area that had no clouds. it was so fast that had i not been staring at it i would have wondered where the flash came from. my mate perceived the flash even though he had his back turned. i have never seen anything like it. the photo i submitted is of the area of flash showing the hole in the clouds where this appeared. i set the camera to 1600 asa for more detail.
