white strip of light that turned blue then disappeared 500 Lights On Object0: Yes

I was standing on my porch just a half an hour ago having a smoke. I was looking to my left at a neighbors house and in the right side of my field of view i saw a white light appear.

At first it looked like it was leaving a trail, like a shooting star or something, but the tail end of it stayed for about 10 or 15 seconds, turned a really bright blue and disappeared all at once. It was almost like a light saber turning on, like it started at one and eventually filled out. It was moving towards the ground it seemed, and it couldn't have been very high because of how ridiculously fast it was going. There was also a pretty dense cloud cover in the direction i was looking and it looked like it was below the clouds.

In what to include in this form, it says to describe my background. I'm not totally sure if that means my credibility as far as my story goes or my surroundings as to where i was at the moment, but its reasonably dark outside and there were no cars or anything on my street and in a completely different direction from the closest airport. And as far as my credibility goes, I'm just an average guy, and somewhat of a skeptic, and it freaked me out enough to Google what to do when i want to report something like this.

I've seen shooting stars before, and tons of airplanes and helicopters, and i have definitely never seen anything like that before. My mom said about a month ago she saw 15-20 lights behind my house that seemed to be moving really slowly together like it was one big object, but i dismissed it as being airplanes or something.
