sky ripped open - bright white light

Driving along and it was as if the sky was ripped open. A bright white light so white it was almost blue pored through. It lit up the sky like day light, then it was if it was sucked back in, the sky closed up. Don't think it was a UFO, but not sure who else to tell

((NUFORC Note: We have checked to see whether an Iridium satellite "flare" might have been visible at the time and date indicated above, and none was visible at that time. PD))
