Neon-Blue Disk w/ Many Lights on Bottom Seen Over Cape May Beach

My husband and I were on vacation, sitting on a bench on the beach in Cape May talking and out of the corner of my eye, I caught sight of a neon-blue disk that looked like a childs sand sifter with thousands of holes which were illuminated with white light. It passed by extremely fast and disappeared behind what looked like it should have been a cloud, but there were none out that evening. The sky was clear and full of stars. The size was relative to a full moon. The moon was not out that evening. I did not hear any sound with seeing the object. About ten minutes later, I saw a shooting star and in comparison, this did not even come close. This traveled horizontally and extremely smooth and fast, whereas the shooting star dipped and fell. I have never seen anything in the sky like this before. It was definitely too fast to be an airplane and the neon-blue/lights as well as fact that it disappeared made me frightened at first, but then curious so I sat there for another half an hour hoping to see something else. Nothing. I have been doing all kinds of research since I returned home and I am interested in knowing if anyone has seen an object resembling the one I have seen.
