|location spherical blue orb emitting sparkly blue laser beams of a deep blue color. hovering altitude approx. 500 to below 100 ft. Position translations of about 1/10 mile accomplished in less than 2 seconds. position translations did not seem to be inhibited by inertia. (no deceleration, one smooth move).
best guess the orb was i/3 diameter of moon. orb observed for 20 minutes during which time it made about 6 or 7 'translations' when it paused it hovered for longer than 5 minutes and blue laser beams were directed downward at mostly shallow angles. 3 of the movements or 'translations' started out smooth but sequenced into 4-5 zig-zags with smooth edges like a sine wave. when the orb reached the next station it was seen to bob up and down in place then stop.
no sounds accompanied the observation as it would a drone. the rapid movements observed rule out lighter than air contraptions.
