strange streaking blue light

friday afternoon i was driving from vermont to new york city down route 22. around 4:50ish, as i was passing through the town of Millerton, NY, i observed a streaking (more like a pulse) blue light that resembled the speed and motion of a meteorite but was much brighter, distinctly blue, and much closer (under the cloud cover). it lasted for no more than a quarter-second. i imagine it would have been visible to a great number of other motorists/casual witnesses for a radius of at least 50 miles. i thought about calling it in to 911 but it didn't seem appropriate. i am utterly and completely flummoxed by this visual event. i know this is a huge longshot but if anyone else witnessed same, chime in. would have been this past friday a little before 5PM.
