Blinding blue/white light over Buffalo, NY

I was smoking a cigarette at approx. 12:50AM EST. I looked down to toss my butt, and as I looked up a blinding blue light was moving extremely fast across the southern sky over the city of Buffalo. The light was blue on the outside and had a white core. As soon as I saw it, it was gone. Vanished completely into the sky. I was recently on a flight to Florida and I would estimate the altitude of the object to be under 5,000 feet. There is an air port here in Buffalo, and for a minute I thought it was a plane crash, however there was absolutely no sound whatsoever. Remained standing there waiting to see more for about five more minutes, and saw nothing. The trail left by the object was remarkably short and moved with it, not like a comet or a meteor.
