Intense white, bright object in sky over Regina SK, CAN. Turned right, moved off fading away

Last night I went for a walk between 9pm and 10pm local time. I walked south from my home two blocks to a local park. There was next to no daylight left at this time, just a dusky orange in the west horizon.

Just before entering the park, I observed two jets high overhead, I always have a look at jets when I hear them just because they interest me. This night I also observed Venus, low in the southeast sky, maybe 10 to 20 degrees from the horizon. The sky was completely cloudless and there was no wind, a perfect night.

About twenty to thirty yards after I strolled into the park I looked to the south sky about 40 degrees up and I saw a very bright, white light. I would say its size was 3 to 4 times the size of Venus (of which I could compare as it was in the sky that night also).

The light reminded me of magnesium burning, that king of intensity, but not so much that it would hurt your eyes. It appeared to me to move in my general direction (northwards) with a slight turning motion, again very bright and very white.

This lasted for maybe 5 seconds before it looks that it turned sharply westward, once it did that its light lost all intensity and appeared then to be a very faint white light.

It was not long (again maybe 5 seconds) before I could not see it at all. Its motion throughout this observation struck me as craft like.

I have observed stars, planets, aircraft, meteors and comets in the skies before. This object was truly unique.

On a side note, my brother is camping at a nearby lake (40-50 miles away). He called me this morning to inform me that he saw a UFO last night, and I had to answer back that I had as well. The funny thing is that in our brief conversation his description of the object was very similar to mine and he saw it about 2 hours later.
