Bright flash lights up entire night sky, with two orange streaks and white circle moving away from earth.

I was in my drive way talking to my Dad and two younger brothers. They were inside my Dad's pickup. A bright white light lit up the entire sky like lightning, but there were no clouds. I looked up and just to my left of the Big Dipper there were two bright orange streaks of light connected to a white circle with what appeared to be "ripples" (as best I can describe it). I reached for my camera phone to take a picture, but within a matter of seconds the two bright streaks disappeared, from nearest the ground to the circle. The circle disappeared when the streaks did. I've seen many, many meteors, and this was not a meteor. I've never seen anything like this before.
