Bright white, flashing light off highway 97 in Washington State, flashing, then instantly changing positions, then zooming up and away,

I was traveling South on Highway 97 in Washington state near the Yakima-Klickitat County line, approximately 5 miles south of the Klickitat county line on the Yakima side, in an uninhabited moutainous area of Washington State, and to the east of the highway are foothills of the Cascade mountains and just above the foothills, about 500ft, was a blinking white light with a brightness that exceded that of a camera flash at close range. Suddenly, in an instant, the light changed position about 100 feet to the south. Then the light was steady white, a blinding white light, then it went dark, then it flashed again and zoomed up and away in the sky in an instant, unlike anything i have ever seen. This was no aircraft, but rather some sort of bright white light. It did not emit a beam, or a trail, but more of a flash, and was blinding bright, flash and changing positions instantly, then it zoomed up and away. I saw it, my 16 year old son saw it and also my 15 year old daughter. We all saw it.
