Bright cobalt blue light on a north-east path from Davenport, FL. @ 5:45 AM

My dogs became very alert and anxious to a muffled booming noise (similar to a door being slammed in the distance).

When I peaked out of the window there was a cobalt blue light in the sky which seem to have movement. Thinking it was a reflection from an electronic device in my bedroom, I decided to go outside to confirm if it was in fact a light in the sky. To my surprise, it was.

The cobalt blue light continued on a path to the North East from my location before disappearing in the distance a rapid lateral motion could be seen which made it seem impossible for a civilian plane. The light was a solid, non-flashing cobalt blue light.

I have been a plane spotter and photographer for years, and have seen many civilian and military aircraft fl,y and it did not behave as such. Living in an area with many balloon flights which often have a light of similar color, I discarded the option due to its speed and path. Also discarded it being a rotary wing craft, due to its speed and rapid lateral movement.
