Not asking a question, just making an observation. This is a short 8 second incident that my dashcam captured a few weeks ago. I was in Cortez, Colorado camped in an RV park with my dashcam running in parking mode overnight. The 'twinkling lights' near the top of the frame are actually raindrops dropping down my windshield. Note that the bottom of the frame is black. At about the 4 second mark, lightning hits in the distance. Now notice that the bottom of the frame immediately has a bluish cast to it. This bluish cast remained for the rest of the night. However, once the camera was reset in the morning, the bluish cast went away in future night time recordings.
