A Pennsylvania witness alerted by a friend to an odd green flash of light in Duryea, PA, returned to the area August 30, 2010, and experienced a green light from above that lit up her car's interior, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The friend explained that a few days earlier, she had been driving along Ransom Road in Duryea, when "she saw some green flash of light coming from the tree line."
The witness returned to Ransom Road August 30, although "in a different area," and saw a green light up ahead while driving.
As she drove under the light, she states that the green light "expanded over the car or something and then it was gone." The light filled up the car's interior.
"Like a quick strobe light, of green all through the car. It was like it came from straight above us."
Duryea is a borough near Pittston in Luzerne County, PA, nine miles south of Scranton, population 4,634.
The following is the unedited and as yet uninvestigated report filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or man made. If Pennsylvania MUFON State Director John Ventre investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.
PA, August 30, 2010 - Green strobe/laser light lit up the car from above. MUFON Case # 25296.
Hi, my name is Erica and I'm not sure exactly how to go about this, but here goes. Last week my girlfriend told me a story about how a few days before she was driving down Ransom RD. Duryea Pa. and she saw some green flash of light coming from the tree line.
So she had me look it up because she believed it was some UFO or something because she said she could see the source of the light one second and then it was just gone. After I looked it up I came across a bunch of things about the "green flash" that comes from the sun at sun up/down. Until last night I thought that's what it had to be.
Well last night we were driving through Ransom again(not in the same section) and in the complete darkness like right in front of us there was a green little bit of light, like a lazor pointer, and then we drove under it and it was like I don't even know how to explain it, it was almost like it expanded over the car or something and then it was gone.
Like a quick strobe light, of green all through the car. It was like it came from straight above us.
I figured i should let someone know about it, it's the 2nd time it's happened. thanks for your time and sorry if this is just me being dumb.
