Location: Cold Lake (Canada), AB
Shape: Light
Duration:30-60 seconds
Bright orange light changes direction abruptly.

My family and a couple of friends where enjoying a fire in the back yard. (6 witnesses) At approx 12:00 my nephew pointed high in the east sky and asked what is that. We all looked.

It was a very bright orange light moving very similar to a satellite, but unusually bright, About 5 times brighter than the ISS.

About 20 seconds of watching it go west, at approx imately directly overhead, it changed its heading to 90 degrees and moved south, without slowing down.

Moving south after about 15 seconds it started to dim and finally faded completely out about 20 degrees above our tree line, also very similar to a satellite.

If it wasn’t for the 90 degree turn, I would have thought it was the ISS with just the right angle.

I’ve witnessed and identified ISS over 100 times since the early 2000’s. This was way too bright.
