Non-aerodynamic movement of indeterminate object at high speed.

I was sitting in the garden with my cousin, talking and looking at the stars when we saw a slow moving light, identical in size and shape to an average star, slowly moving above us from est to west. We thought it was a sattelite or other object until it stopped dead and the continued at almost right angles to it's original trajectory. It performed seemingly random turns 3 or 4 more times before finally moving away beyond our sight. It appeared to move slowly but, using the roof of the house as one reference point and the treeline opposite as another, which were around 30 meteres apart, dependant on the height of the object iot crossed this space in about 20 seconds, suggesting a rate of some hundreds of miles per hour.
