Looked like shooting star, but then changed direction by 90 degrees as it flew across the skies

I was lying in bed and looking out at the sky when I saw this big shooting star, I watched it go across the sky, very fast, then it turned 90 degrees(from south heading north,) then turning and flying directly east. Then disappeared. I got up and looked out the door and the other stars were hardly visible. This looked like a big shooting star, but it did not burn out, and also changed directions. The color was a bright reddish yellow.
