Huge Orb!!!!

I was outside sitting on my front step which faces SW. It is cold out so I only planned on having a quick cigarette. I saw this huge bight light. It looked like it was maybe hovering above Lake Ontario/ St-Lawrence river. I thought it might be a helicopter since I live close to the Kingston Airport, but the light did not move or have any other flashing lights just a blue haze around it. I called my mom out to the step and ask her if there were any planets that would be that huge and bright and close this time of year. She informed me that she did not hear of any on the news. Sometimes they let us know if you can see them without a telescope. I came back inside and googled planets to see if there was one this big and close. There were no head lines. The closest and brightest one for this time of year was Sirius and it was so far and small and distant compared to what I saw. I thought this bizzare and went outside to look again. The light was still there. It was. same spot, not moving, no sounds of engines. Just sat there motionless. I was just turing around to go back inside because it was so cold and I took one last look. I am not shitting you when I say this light took off almost faster than my eyes could see!! I didn't know what to do, and had to sit and think about what i just saw. Unless the news says otherwise I saw a UFO. I know I did. I cannot think of any other explanation. Weather balloons don't move that fast. Nor do helicopters or any airplane I have seen or know about! Looking from where I saw on my step this thing had to have been huge! I am terrible at guessing but the light was like 3 of the lights that the jail I work in. All put together. I don't drink or do drugs and my mom saw it too!
