bright star-like object ascending out into space.

Looking North, witnessed a bright star-like object appearing to ascend out into space. At first, it was several times larger than the brightest star. Continued to ascend to what appears to be the outer fringes of our atmosphere. At that point, it instantly changed direction to the left and disappeared.
