Fast high altitude sunlit object made sharp 90 degree turn before going out of sight.

I remember the weather was warm, the day sunny. I’m guessing September 1963. The sun was about 3pm. I was about 13 yrs. old.

My brother who had been in the Air Force, my Dad, and I watched a bright sunlight object high in the sky and moving fast. My Mom may have been present.

My brother made the observation as to altitude and speed. The object made a sharp 90 degree turn while flying.

I’m guessing it lasted less than 5 minutes, and then it went out of sight.
