Sighting Details

I was about 11-12 years old and standing alone on the sidewalk in front of my house. In the southern sky I saw two very quick blinks of light, it was sunny out and no clouds. After the 2 blinks of light a big colorful clam shape flash of multiple colors flashed originating from a small point in the southern sky. It disappeared then the whole sequence happened again 2 perhaps 3 more times. When I first noticed the first quick blinks of light I thought it might be lightning, but it was sunny and not a cloud in the sky. These lights would then shoot out in a clam shape or more like one of those hand fans that fold. During this time I heard no sounds of cars, or people, I was alone and had absolutely awareness except for what was taking place in the sky, I could not move, I was very frightened. I could not speak or scream for my parents, they were in the house playing cards with my Aunt and Uncle. I was absolutely paralyzed. After it was over I saw cigar shaped flashes of very bright solid white light going from west to east, it would disappear then reappear further west two more times then it reappeared once again this time it came from the west and was longer. And NO it was not the northern lights.
