I saw an intense light formation in the sky at 1a.m. in Austin, Tx., which stood still for a while, rose vertically, then vanished

I was outside at 1 a.m. this morning, in Austin, Tx., when the sighting occurred. I was looking off of my balcony, over the Lake Travis, and directly facing the 360 bridge.

Out of nowhere, a very intense white beaming light appeared in the sky, and was motionless for about 30-60 seconds. There was just one formation. It looked at least 5-10 times larger than a bright, twinkling star. I walked inside, scared, as I had never seen anything like it before, and looked through the window.

Almost immediately after I got inside, it began to rise vertically. This went on for approximately 10-15 seconds, and then it disappeared quite instantly. There were no noises that accompanied it.
