Blue oval object over ocean in front of a lightning storm move at a high rate of speed.

It was approximately 12:08am EST on August 19, 2011, I was standing in my back yard watching the lightning storms over the ocean. This is when I looked to the left (North East) and seen a blue oval shaped object moving at great speed about 10 degrees above the horizon, just above the roof tops of the houses in the distance. It moved north east to south west.

The object was about the size of a 20 millimeter bb, it was oval and moved in a straight line across the sky from north east to south west. It was moving very fast, it took less than 10 seconds to move across the sky and my view. At this time there was and commercial aircraft moving towards it. The commercial aircraft was much higher in the sky. It was at about 60 degrees above the horizon and you could see the FAA required lights along with the shape. Commercial aircraft have to fly at higher altitudes due to the military base I’m close to. Also, the speed of the commercial aircraft was much slower than the object.

The object was in front of the storm because you could see the lightning storm and clouds behind it. There also was no sound. I also could not hear the commercial aircraft either, but I could see the moon, stars, the commercial aircraft, and clouds very clearly. The storm in the distance was over the ocean.
