Moving "star" turned bright bright blue and traveled at a fast pace.

The object looked like a star but was moving across the sky at a semi-fast pace. Once it reached the constellation Lynx, the moving "star" started to turn bright, bright blue.

Slowly it faded back to original color, through binoculars it just look like a moving star. It seemed to be going farther up because it faded and went to far for the eyes to see.

Two women witnessed the UFO. It didn't look like a comet, the women star-gaze everynight.
