My wife and I were on our deck watching the fireworks display at Webster Groves Recreation Center, about a mile from our location. A bright light shot across the sky and lit up our entire back yard. It was going from east to west. A brilliant white light appeared from the east, traveling in a westerly direction. It turned the whole area bright as day for a few seconds. It did not make any sound. this happened about 9:30 in the evening.
