Bright white light moving at a fast rate of speed towards the west. Travelled for about 20 seconds, made a 90 degree turn to the north. Travelled north for about 15 seconds, made a 90 degree turn to the east. Was seen for another 10 seconds approx. then disappeared from view.

It was 2:51am EDT and I was outside helping my parent's pack their van to go on their trip to Nova Scotia. My dad went inside and I was looking at the stars when I noticed an extremely bright white light heading west at a fast rate of speed. After about 20 seconds, the light made a sharp 90 degree turn to right and headed north. After about 15 seconds of heading north, the light then made another sharp 90 degree turn to the right, heading east. The object then sped up and was out of view after about 10 seconds. I live under flight paths that planes use to go into and out of Lester B. Pearson International Airport, however, the airport is closed at that hour of the night and there had been absolutly no air traffic since about 12:30am.
