White Flash near Exit 19 Thruway Kingston

While driving south on the NY Thruway we observed a sudden flash in the sky to our left at the entry point of exit 19. It was as if somebody had taken a picture from about 500 feet in the air. It was very bright and both myself and my 16 year old son observed it immediately asking each other " Did you see that? " simultaneously. It did not happen again though we were looking for it through the windows and moonroof. The sky was clear and we were both lucid, having just stopped for coffee. I just filed the report as I had not been on the site for a while and saw a sighting out of Albany on 11/28. We were returning from a Hockey Tournament in Canada and I just checked the date of our return, finding it was 11/27. I am not exactly certain of the time, I would say between 10pm and 1am.
