intense blue light on route 10 between davis creek mountain and barboursville(rural area)

my mother and i was driving north on state route 10 just a few miles past Davis Creek Mountain and on our left around the hillside we could see a super bright blue flashing light that lit up the entire valley between the hills that we were driving through. at first we thought it was an emergency vehicle, but i quickly relized it was way too bright for just strobe lights on a police car or fire truck. we never actually saw the craft but the light was so intense, and i am sure there were no man made light sources in the area that could emit that much light. then as we aproached barboursville, toward route 60, i saw a small flash maybe distant flash over the hill to my left which would have been the western sky.
