An object flys from North to South, makes turn into space.

I was walking the dogs just prior to daybreak and while they go about their business, I usually look at the morning sky. I saw, what I thought at first was a shooting star, approaching from the north. It continued south and just stopped. It stayed there for about 5 seconds, long enough for me to continue to focus on it, and made a sharp 90 degree, (left), turn into space. It was so far out that I could not make out a shape, color, etc. Being a veteran from the U.S. Air Force and knowing what speeds our military and commercial aircraft are capable of doing, I know for a fact that it wasn't ours. I can also guess that the speed of this object was between 2000-5000 MPH just by visual vectoring alone. I'm sorry I don't have the exact date, time, but I never knew this web site existed. You may contact me if you wish by e-mail.
