The object was bright and made a left turn then started to ascend and pick up speed and shot upward and disappeard from view.

We were looking at the sky and saw this white oval object in the NW sky heading towars the NE. At first we thought it might be the Internation Space Station but it was a little smaller (we had just seen the ISS a couple weeks ago when it had passed over our city). We continued to watch the object and then it started to make a left turn and start to ascend and then pick up speed and shot upward and then disappeared out of sight.
