Object in night sky lands/communicates with Vega.

On 5/11/14 at approximately 23:45, I was soaking in my hot tub facing South. The Moon was 2 days shy of being full yet there was still plenty of stars to see on that clear night.

I noticed a couple quick flashes directly under the Moon and quickly came to the conclusion it was a satellite. Then, I saw the object heading East and knew right away it was moving too fast to be a satellite. After about 3 seconds, the object shot 90 degrees and suddenly stopped. I thought to myself, "way too fast to be anything man made yet too slow to be a shooting star or other space garbage." Not to mention, it didn't 'burn out'.

At that moment, I knew it was not of this world. The object moved up and down and then headed to a bright star. I later learned from my phone app, Google Sky Map, the star was Vega located in the constellation Lyra. I could barely see the object as it seemed to closely orbit Vega. About three minutes later, the object headed North and I lost sight of it.

The whole sighting was as if I was looking at a dim star/satellite that was moving at different speeds. All I can think of is how fast that object must have been going to travel the distance it did in such a short period of time.

Also, if it was a craft of some kind, how could I see it with the naked eye? My only conclusion is it travelled through some worm hole? Maybe it wasn't a craft but a form of energy? I am reporting this in hope that someone else saw it too. Very interested in if anyone has any thoughts on what I saw also.
