glowing bright object with with either fast moving glowing parts around it or a glowing halo.

i was sitting around a bondfire with my family and a neighbor. i looked to the north sky and saw what seemed to be a star with a fuzzy lit blue ring around it. it zipped to the west of the sky and i told everyone to look! as they did it zipped across the sky to the east and slightly back to the west and then straight over us to the south. it looked almost like it had wings twice as fast as a humming bird's wings which seemed to cause the fuzzy halo around the lit object. it all happened in five seconds from the time i told everyone to look. it moved so silently and so fast it was unbelievable. in no time we were arguing about what it was and noone can answer it. about a half an hour later, it appeared out of nowhere above us and shot north at an even more amazing speed than before with only a quick shot to the west and back straight north until it dissappeared. i have no idea what it was and i don't want to try to explain it. none of us drink or do drugs of any sort, nor are we quick to assume but this was beyond strange. i have observed the night skies for 23 years and never and i mean never saw something like this.
