Bluish Orb Seen Above Milwaukee, WI on Wednesday 10/20/99

I witnessed a hazy bluish orb fairly high in a crystal clear sky traveling S to N then veering NW and fading at approximately 10:30 or 10:45 CST on Locust Avenue while facing the Western sky. My view was unobstructed. All other lights in the sky were pinpoint sharp except for this almost aquamarine colored spherical orb. It was hazy while plane lights nearby and stars were sharp. The orb which caught my attention in my vertical peripheral vision was only seen by me for between 6 to 8 seconds. Perhaps if I had been looking at the sky initially I might have had a longer viewing time.
