Bright Light UFO spotted in Prospect, Maine

My Son & I were outside listening to an owl when I saw this very bright, what I first thought to be a star, come out of no where and quickly travel across the sky. It then suddenly disappeared into the milky way. I tried taking pictures with my cell phone and normally I cant with any other stars because they're not bright enough or too far away but I did with this. Also, when I took a picture of it; when I zoomed in,it made this huge hazy image appear on my camera & I couldnt take a picture until it had passed overhead. My phone has never done that when taking pictures. It also was not a shooting star. My Son and I have seen other strange things while laying outside looking up at stars but this by far gave me goosebumps and I knew it wasnt anything other than a UFO.
