Bright blue light shoots across Pennsylvania sky causing power outages and stopping car engines

I was walking home with my friend when a bright blue object shot across the sky emitting an aura of a similar color.

The object was heading south moving faster than any aircraft I've ever seen and it appeared to be fairly close to the ground. It was only in the sky for a few a seconds and in those few seconds all the lights in the neighborhood went off.

The object itself didn't make any noise but it caused the surroundings in the area to vibrate making a thumping sound. A car traveling south on U.S Route 19 also had its headlights turn off during the incident.

After the bright blue object flew out of sight power was restored to the neighborhood and the car's engine started. The event occurred so quickly that I didn't even have time to record it with my phone's camera; it couldn't have lasted longer than ten seconds.

I was so terrified by what I saw that I sprinted home as fast as I possibly could. When I arrived at my house, I asked my mother if she experienced a power outage and she said that she did.

I asked some of my acquaintances if they experienced any strange phenomena last night and they told me several stories of power outages and tremors.

I have reasons to believe that what I saw was not terrestrial.
