A large bright light that shot away at a high rate of speed on the morning of July 9th near the ID/Ore. boarder

On the early morning of July 9th while my wife and I where out camping near the Owyhee Resevoir in Ore. about 50 minutes from Meridian Idaho. While there I saw a very large bright light at about 12:45am to the SouthWest about a mile away and a few thousand feet above the ground (near) the canyon rim. The light was circular and very large and bright, emitting a very white light, it had no collision lights like an airplane and it was far to big and bright to be a star. I watched it for a bout a minute while it sat stationary, I was about to point it out to my wife, when it suddenly shot up and away, towards the West, leaving a sort of trail of white light behind it and it disappeared in mere seconds, before i could show it to my wife.
