shot upwards after emiting a strange beam

Left a friends house to walk to another residence about a mile down the way, the sky was littered with thunderclouds as earlier the day it stormed heavily, the storm itself was slowly shifting with the winds as if it was preparing itself for another rain. About 60 yards from the house we left, 4 of us in total, noticed a formation of lights and at first just figured it was a passing plane. However we then noticed it was flying beneath the storm and at a very slow speeds, as if it was gliding, and the closer we walked we also noticed no sound. Talking to each other, we joked about how the object is an alien and a friend then blurted out. "Don't juuuuuuuuuuudge me". As if on que, the object actually stopped which caused the 4 of us to stop and watch, the object then shot out then beam of light that moved at least 90', you could see the light actually reflecting off the clouds, the beam shot upwards then went off. Right after the object then shot itself upwards! at unknown speeds, fast enough to have myself and the 3 others basically shit out pants. From what it seemed, the object was hiding between the clouds for as we stood there trying to recollect what just occurred, a passenger plane then flew by above the storm, this time its engines clearly audible for a group of people enjoying a walk in the sleeping suburbs of Fredericksburg.
