Bright Blue Fluorescent Light Seen in Virginia Outside Washington DC

I am reporting a strange light my wife and I saw over Gainesville Va.

While my wife and I were walking my dog I noticed a bright almost fluorescent Blue light stationary in the North Eastern sky. After a few minutes of observing the object, the light started to move. The light quickly picked up speed, abruptly slowed to a stop, starting moving again and than sped off to the South West at a tremendous pace.

The blue color of this light is hard to describe, it was the strangest bright translucent fluorescent blue I have ever seen. I am baffled at what this object was.
