object with a glowing blue shield and fire following seen in Staten Island, New York.

I was waiting for my mother to open up the door and as I waited I looked up at the sky as I usually do to see the stars when I noticed a sort of circular object in the sky glowing with what looked like a blue light as a shield and fire that sparkled. It was too quiet and too close to have been an airplane or a helicopter. It was moving at a pace that was not too slow but was not lightning fast either. I tried to run down my porch stairs to take a picture but when I looked again, it was gone.
