Not ISS...South to North light emits bright blue/white light over Lehi, Utah

We were on our deck watching for the International Space Station which was to come into view at 22:09, passing WSW to NE. We both spotted a light traveling almost overhead going from the South directly North. This object was very high, but moved faster than any satellite we have seen. As we have seen the ISS before, this light was not nearly as bright as we remembered. As this light got almost overhead of us, it emitted an extremely bright blue/white light which lasted about a second...shorter than a camera flash. It almost seemed like a short beam. After the bright light we could still see the object continuing on to the north.

After about 20 seconds it faded out or just disappeared. Just after it disappeared we spotted the ISS traveling in the direction previously mentioned. It was much brighter than the other light. There was also a plane which had taken off from SLC International Airport, southbound, which was gaining altitude. But the light moving ! S-N was much much higher.
