Bright fireball in the sky

On July 1 2012 my 2 daughters, a co worker, and I were leaving my office when spotted a bright light in the sky. We stopped our vehicle and continued to observe this light as it appeared to be getting closer to us. At first we thought it may be an approaching airplane on fire as it was in a direction that airplanes normally approach the Thunder Bay airport. I did not observe flashing lights from the wings so it couldnt be an airplane.

The object continued to get closer and brighter, lights flickering, appeared to stop for around 15 seconds and we could see it was definitely not an airplane. The object then appeared to turn 90 degrees and travel at an extremely hight rate of speed westbound in to the sky. We watched the object unitl its path went behind a montuain top.

My daughter captured a video of the object on her Iphone.
