Star-like obkect in sky moves silently, and changes directions.

It was August 30th at around 7pm EST, and me and my friend decided to go on a quick ATV ride to a near by Mountain. We were up there for about an hour or so just looking at the view and when it started to get dark we decided to head back. We were just about to get on the ATV when a Bright light in the sky caught our attention. At first we thought it was a star, but it wasn't dark enough yet for stars. Then the object started moving fast and silently. It had no tail behind it, it was just a bright Star-like object. It also wasn't blinking at all it was one solid light. Just before the object got to the Horizon it changed directions, and then vanished.

We then tried to start my ATV and couldn't. It was making a sound like a bunch of rocks spinning in a metal fan. Then we saw a plane heading off in the same direction that the object was in. These two things were probably a coincidence but it made the event a lot stranger.
