Light descends and makes a sharp left turn

My friend and I were walking our dogs through a local cemetery in town and we always stop along the river to talk and to watch the night sky.

It was 8:13pm, and due north between the big dipper and the north star my friend first spotted a ball of light that appeared in the sky. The ball of light appeared to get brighter and fall rapidly, from where it first appeared, it descended in a straight line towards earth, than it made a loop de loop (one complete circle), than it went right and left in a roller coaster type of action, and it made a very sharp left turn going west. As the light made a sharp left turn the brightness faded and it seemed to have slowed down after it made the left turn and the ball of light began to fade and than as fast as it appeared it was gone.

My friend and I stayed there till 9:30pm, and the clouds began to move in. We did not see anything more. My friend who is very skeptical, truly could not explain this.

This particular object was capable of descending in an almost straight line towards earth and make a loop, than turn right and left, before making a sharp left turn and at that point it slowed down, as though it was like airplane traffic speed in the sky. All of this took less than 8 seconds.
