System Ops: A Very Bright Flash in the Middle of Nowhere

At 2344 last night for a brief moment the night sky off in the distance was illuminated with a very bright flash.

The power lines in the foreground are 12KV distribution lines. Running along the horizon line are some 70KV transmission lines one of those poles was rotted and the wind blew it down last night. Before the protective relays kicked in and isolated it I imagine there was quite the flash and bang.
