bright blue sphere near Smithland, IA

I saw a blue light to the south of the highway. It was a ways away so I thought it may be an emergency vehicle on a gravel road. As I was nearing the hill, the blue light got closer. In the blink of an eye it went directly over the top of me. It was so bright, I could not see out of my car! All of the lights on my car went out including my headlights and all interior lights just for a second but my car engine did not stall. It was going from south to north, when I looked to the north to see where it went, it was gone. I have seen other objects near this same area, I don't know if it is a "hot spot" or I am just so special I get to see all these things.
