solid bright white light coming and going and a flash

As I was exiting my truck with my girlfriend we saw a super bright, solid white light moving from SW to NE. At first I thought it was a low flying helicopter coming towards us. As it arced upwards above our heads it started to look more like a comet or something similar. It had a long tail for a second as it got overhead and then the tail disappeared again and it kept moving steady as a bright white light until it went out of our field of vision over trees towards Glacier National Park. We then went inside and about 30 seconds later my girlfriend saw a bright flash of sky light up the sky which she described like a flash of lightning only no bolt.
