I saw a flash in the sky Fresno, Ca 8/23/07

I just had taken a shower and thought I would water the plants in the backyard before I went and sat on the couch to start a movie. There is a tree in the neighbors yard that I can see from my backyard. I suddenly saw a glowing light come from behind the tree (no bigger than the north star) in a straight line heading west and then it stopped gave two flashes of light simultaneously and all of a sudden shot straight in the air at such a speed it was unbelieveable and as it went higher it gave one last flash and completely went black. The whole experience lasted 4 seconds. No longer. I know what I saw was real it was so silent and so fast there is no way it was anything human.
