A bright blue light n the sky and quckly shot accross the sky. 2 witness

The day after the Fourth of July myself, husband, brother-in-law and sister were sitting around the pool. We had been in the pool all day and after eating dinner we decided to go back outside and enjoy yhe weather. It was about 1 am and we were watching the clouds roll in from the south west over the white tank mountains. It was partly cloudy over our house as well. My sister and I enjoy watching the lightning beacuse being from Arizona it is very rare we get a good rain storm. The lighning we had been wayching was several miles away froms us and there had been no lightning above us at all. We both saw the sky above us light up, at first we thought it was the lightning. My sister and I looked up at the same time and in a small cloud we saw what appeared to be a bright blue light. It was still in the cloud for about 3-4 seconds. Then the light shot acroos the sky to the right and was gone. we looked at each other in disbelief. And asked both of our husbands if they saw it. neither of them had seen the actual light but they did see the brightness from the light that lasted longer than a bolt of lightning. There was no lightning above us at all that night so I am not sure what it was we saw exactlly but it definatly was not a plane or a jet because it made no noise. It was there in one spot and within an instant it was gone. The development we live in is new and is right behind the White tank mountains.We used to ride out there frequently, until they developed these homes, on our ATV's. This is not the first time we saw something like this and I am sure it won't be the last.
