Brilliant blue light shown down on us and then shot across the sky at unimaginable speed

Was walking the dog with my son, when I noticed a blue light that was illuminating the sidewalk. I checked to see if my mobile phone was shining on the sidewalk and realized that not only was it off, but the light was all around me and was coming from above.

I looked into the sky and at cloud level was a stationary blue ball of light. Within a second of my viewing it it shot off across the sky at unimaginable speed, leaving a trail of light behind it that lit up the clouds in blue light as it passed over them. It appeared to travel 50+ miles (I'm guessing that is the distance of the edge of the horizon at eye level) in less than a second. It was amazing.
