UFO over Austintown, Ohio?

My best friend and I were driving back into Austintown from the Ellsworth area, which is mostly fields/farms. I was looking out the window a little to the right of us where there was a large field and some woods. I saw this BRIGHT blue object zoom across the sky, it disappeared right before it hit the tree line.

At first I wasn't sure what to think of it, like maybe I was just seeing things. Then my friend said that she saw it too.

We discussed other possibilities of what it could be, such as a shooting star. It was far too big, low, and blue to be a shooting star.

There wasn't any sort of sound or explosion when the object suddenly vanished into thin air.

I'm still so shocked by this event, I want to know if anyone else saw it!
