Bright white light suddenly disappears.

I was driving in an Easterly direction, when I spotted a light in the sky. I told my son that it looked like an airplane was flying right towards us. It looked like an airplane when it is coming straight on with its forward lights.

We observed for a few seconds, and then all of a sudden there was a flash, and it seemed to shoot North at a very high rate of speed, fading out before we could really tell.

I pulled over and observed several aircraft in the area, one which seemed to be "looking" for something as it was flying at about the same height as the previous object. The lighting was very bright white no other colors observed.

This is the third time I have seen strange things in the sky here. I reported the last one on february 26 2004.
