Brilliant flash of blueish/white light that illuminated the entire area

I was fishing, sitting back in my chair, changing the song on my iPhone when suddenly a brilliant blueish/white explosion of light illuminated the entire area.

I look up just quick enough to catch a glance of what is very hard to describe with certainty because it happened so fast, but what I can say for fact is that whatever caused this flash was very close to me; about 20 yards in front of me and about 50 yards above the water. Literally almost over head.

What I recall once I looked at the source was a blueish/white light with a bit of a tail, sort of like a spade, but the tail wasn't as acute. Also, the spade of light was slightly split in the middle by a blue streak. This light source/spade was about 20 yards wide and 30 yards long.

I imagine this phenomenon was a craft exploding into acceleration and what I saw was the propulsion like that from a modern rocket ship. Except this was light not fire.

And it made no noise at all, that's the most unbelievable part to me, being as close as I was.

I don't believe I was abducted because there was no loss of time or bodily marks and such. Not even feelings of fear or unease.

Although this was my first of three verified sightings/encounters in a month. This flash, & 2 separate orange circle/orb sightings that can be nothing other than extra terrestrial.
