Location: Ames (north of), IA
Shape: Flash
Duration:3 seconds
bright blue/white flash north/northwest of Huxley, IA

I was on my way to my overnight position, traveling north on I-35 in between Elkheart and Huxley, IA. There were no visible clouds in the sky and no visual obstructions. I saw a bright blue/white flash fly through the sky, north/northwest of me, seemingly moving towards the Earth from my perspective. It was very brief, and way brighter than a shooting star or satellite. The car in front of me clearly saw it aswell, because they veered into the other lane briefly as though they were distracted.
