oblong glowing blue light in the north, then the north east

While out on my porch, I happened to look up in to the sky in the northern direction. There was a long, almost hotdog shaped blue boject in the sky at about maybe 50 degrees. it was the same color blue as the base of a flame with one part of it brighter than the rest. it stayed lit in the sky for about 1 1/2 seconds then dissapeared. About 5 seconds later I saw the same "thing" but now in the north-eastern part of the sky at about the same degree. Whatever it was produced no sound nor did it blink. It was just a steady "glowing blue hotdog" shape of light.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness at length, and found her to be credible. PD))
