"star" seen climbing vertically in the sky.

My girlfriend and I had woken up from a nap at around 3:00am. We went out on her balcony so 8 could smoke. After about thirty minutes, she was looking over my shoulder to the northwest and asked "what's that light in the sky over there?" I looked to my right and saw a light that looked like a distant star, but it was far too low to be a star. It was ascending straight up and would blink intermittently. It wasn't moving extremely fast, and would pause at different intervals. The fact that it was going directly vertical was what was odd about it. It wasn't a plane, helicopter or a drone. A drone doesn't fly that high and planes or helicopters don't climb upwards in a direct line.

I'm not sure what the object was, but I'm sure it wasn't a plane, helicopter, drone or meteor. This happened in Jefferson county near the bullitt county line. It eventually climb up into the clouds and we lost sight of it.
