Extremely bright light shot through the sky

Myself and 2 friends were outside on my patio right before midnight. It was partly cloudy skies, some stars.

The sky suddenly got really bright, as bright a a lightning strike, and stayed that way for about 3 seconds straight, we looked up and an extremely bright light was moving as fast as a falling star, but much much much brighter.

I assumed it was a meteor at first, but I never saw a falling star as bright as a lightning strike.

My friend looked up about a second before i did, she said it had been hovering before it took off.

I sat there, thinking, that it might have been an ICBM for about a minute afterwards, and was listening for explosion, but there was no noise for about another 2 minutes, could have been thinder in the distance.
