|white light west to east banked hard as incoming jet flew intercept
At approximately 21:30 EST I was looking due west approximately 45 to 50 degrees altitude. It was a relatively clear nite, only a few cumulus clouds and unlimited visibilty. I saw a bright white light, slightly brighter than the ISS moving at high speed due east, initially thought it a satellite until I saw it bank southward hard 45 degrees. Just than I saw a plane almost overhead approx. 10,000 feet flying intercept to object, plane was unusual in that it seemed to fly much faster than regular commercial traffic and had a solid red light on belly, and a much brighter red flashing one in same general area, no blue wingtip lite seen and I was looking intently at it. As the plane neared about 4 to 5000 feet from object the light simply went out and vanished.
