Moving "star" moving east in slow, crooked line before veering SE in Vancouver early morning sky

I was heading to work, when I decided to look up at the night sky to see if there were any Northern Lights visible during the solar flare. I was looking north and saw 2 stars instead but what caught my eye was that the second star was moving. Both stars were of the same intensity and brightness to the naked eye and it had not occurred to me it could be a moving object. The UFO was not bright and blended well with the other night stars. If it had not moved, you would thought it was just a star.

I initially thought it was a meteor/shooting star, but what made me suspicious was that it moved in a slow, crooked, line, about 1 cm per 1-1.5 sec (take a ruler and move it about 30 cm away from your face/eye and hold the ruler, that is how fast it was moving when you are looking at the night sky, I am not sure how else to describe it). The "star" moved east in an obviously crooked line and eventually drifted south-east and disappeared out of sight. It did not blink so it is unlikely it was an airplane, and it does not have other lights nor was shaped like a triangle so it may not even be a drone at all. It had no other coloured lights nor multiple lights. The night sky was quiet and that "star" did not produce any sounds. The sky was clear with no clouds so visibility was not an issue.
