Blue disk appears to explode shooting blue light toward ground.

I was westbound on I-80 west of Lincoln, Nebraska early in the morning of the Sept. 14th. I was watching, what I thought was the planet Mars, as it was the brightest light in the sky to the left of the road. I was wondering where the moon was in relation to it, as I had recently observed them together and this made me start to wonder if this was Mars? As I was watching this 'light' a large object, either a disk at an angle, or a cigar shape, appeared out of nowhere just below the light. It was bright blue and as quickly as it appeared, blew up? shooting out a blue light toward the ground. There appeared to be dust or particles left in the area it had just occupied? All this happened in a very short period of time- almost instantly and startled me so badly, I pulled off on the shoulder of the road to regain my composure.

I still kept looking at the light which now appeared to be pulsing and of different colors. I took out my digital camera and filmed the pulsing light for a few seconds. I took some stills that later showed orbs in the vicinity also.

Vehicles on the other side of the road were stopped also, but continued on before I had a chance to ask them if they saw what I saw.
