Bright, spread out white flash in northeastern sky 10:00PM 09/09/2017

My family and I were standing in our field looking at the cloudless, 2/3 full moon, southwestern night sky when all of us said, "Did you see that?!" We all saw a very bright, white flash in the northeast sky. What was weird was all of us saw this flash out of the corner of our eyes so that attests to how bright and spread out the flash was.
