Blue metallic sphere in early morning sky

At 5:50AM, I was walking my dog, as always, along my street, strolling casually and checking out the dawn sky. As I looked towards the WSW, I saw an object...blue with a metallic quality, spherical, at approximately 60 degrees above the horizon. No lights...no glow...but clearly there. It was about the size of a fairly large star. As we walked along, I kept an eye on it, and it remained stationary...same height and same location in the sky. This lasted for almost 20 minutes. As we were heading back to the house from the end of our walk, I noticed that the object began to glow with very clear blue color, a couple of shades darker than robin's egg blue, the metallic quality no longer visible. As it got brighter, it also began to slowly pulsate. The pulsation grew faster, and the glow grew brighter. Suddenly, as it was about as bright as it seemed it could get, and pulsing as fast as a strobe, it took off in a N direction...in motion and out of sight in about 2! seconds.

I called in this report to NUFORC as soon as I got in the house.

I would certainly like to know if anyone else saw this incredible object that morning, or at any time before or since.
