Bright light appears on highway with other drivers witnessing

Exactly 10:15 pm, driving east on highway, with 2 other cars ahead and 1 behind. It was hot, muggy, humid with patches of fog in air. A flash of light straight ahead which was about 1-2 miles ahead, was thought to be lightning was brief, then light lit up the right side of road ahead of cars, and lasted longer around 3 mins. It was a brilliant white light which cut through the haze and fog, with a focal point that showed it was landing or hovering, and was gone as fast as it appeared. It was out of the ordinary, the area was on the outskirts of city, trees, bush and farm along the highway, the two cars put on brakes ahead, and stopped as light appeared. Therefore, they must of noticed how strange this light appeared. Also, I slowed to a stop, and car behind. After incident all cars turned left and continued onto city, without investigating including self. Shrugged it off as lightning in that brief period, until reached home when a strange feeling that witnessed a rare event was convinced it was unidentified, as to the reactions of other drivers also.
