strange lightning over a mountain

4 of us were driving from Penn State to Erie after a graduation and took I-80 east instead of west. I was driving and figured it out after driving 2 hours the wrong direction. after turning around about 1/2 hour later noticed that there was what appeared to be lighting near a mountain. it was a large amount of it and after about 10 minutes after getting closer i said outloud that is not lighting, it was not moving like a storm would, what is that. after coming around a curve about 10 minutes later there was a huge white light on us. I have helecopters fly in my neighborhood and live near an airport but this was like nothing i have ever seen. it was huge atleast the size of a car. since i was driving i was stunded but also i was thinking of stopping. my 84 yr old mother in law and husband said to keep driving. my husband saw the craft move over the car and just disappeared. i wanted to turn around but they would not let me. there were no sounds in the air either so i know it was not any type of aircraft
