Flash of halogen-quality light on fast moving object

We were driving home on July 4th mid evening. The sky was not completely dark yet. Fireworks were just starting to be set. The light we saw appeared like an instantaneous flash of halogen light. It skipped over an area and flashed again. We saw it flash four times before is left the valley. It started in the west end of the valley and covered an area headed east of about 30-40 miles in just 10 seconds or less. At first, we thought it was an airplane, but it moved too quickly, and covered a long distance. It was NOT fireworks, because of the distance it covered, and the light was consistant with each flash.
