A fluorescent light blue object leaving a trail behind it, traveling at a very fast speed in the clear night sky

I was walking by myself when I saw this object. Whatever I saw, it was pretty big. I'd say atleast five times the size of any light beacons on the towers near my home. It traveled from NE to SW at a very high speed, was a very light fluorescent blue in color, and left a trail behind it. I'm not sure how long it was actually visible because there were some trees obstructing my view. I may have just seen the tail end of this objects flight path. The night sky was extremely clear and I also noticed alot more air traffic than usual. I want to say the tip of it was rounded, almost like a roundnose pistol bullet. I'm pretty sure it wasn't a meteor. I am not an expert on these things, but I can definitely say I've never seen anything like this before.
