An eyewitness from the city Drachten writes:

Flash of light over Drachten, and I firmly believe that this is not a storm. You don't hear anything, only the occasional inexplicable flash.

After some observation of the outbreaks there was a big bright flash of light. Followed by new outbreaks, one less bright than the other, but not so bright, as we have seen.

Between the flashes there is an indefinite period, at one point between 2 minutes and another 5 minutes again. You would think that this is a storm, but at the moment it is booming in North Holland (03:35). Much that we see the flash from here .. Planning to start thunder in Drachten around 6:00.

Original news

DRACHTEN, FR — Lichtflitsen boven Drachten, en ik geloof er sterk in dat het geen onweer is. Je hoort niks, alleen af en toe een onverklaarbare flits. Na een tijdje de flitsen in de gaten gehouden te hebben kwam er een flinke felle lichtflits. Daarop volgen meer lichtflitsen, de ene minder fel dan de andere maar niet meer zo fel als die we hadden gezien. Tussen de flitsen zit een onbepaalde tijd, het ene moment zit er 2 min tussen en het andere moment duurt het weer 5 min. Je zou toch echt denken dat dit onweer is maar momenteel onweert het in Noord-Holland (03:35) lijkt me sterk dat we de flitsen vanaf hier kunnen zien.. Het is van plan rond 06:00 te gaan onweren in Drachten.

Hypotheses

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

The storm

The storm is an atmospheric phenomenon in which the inside of clouds or between the cloud and the earth's surface arise electrical discharges - lightning accompanied by thunder. It is quite a common natural phenomenon in certain situations could be considered something abnormal, such as when it appears under unusual conditions or unfamiliar to the eyewitness. A vivid example is the so-called "snow storm" (or "snow storm"), i.e. thunderstorm, which is when rain falls heavy snow, freezing rain or ice pellets.

Investigation

Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials

Probably it really is summer lightning (instant flash of light on the horizon at a distant storm). While lightning thunder is not heard because of range, but you can see flashes of lightning, the light which is reflected from a cumulonimbus cloud (mainly the peaks). Based on the eyewitness data on nearby thunderstorms, it is quite probable version.
