Saw a big bright light make a 90 degree turn and vanish

While sitting on our back porch, which faces due east, I saw an extremely large, bright light. Most of the stars were "gone" due to the twilight. It wasn't blinking. There was no sound. It was a white light. Just a little smaller than a dime at arm's length. There are some trees about a block away and it was higher than them.

It made a slight decent as it traveled from south to north then made a literal " right turn" and shot out of sight! It wasn't a sweeping turn, it was heading north then abruptly shot to the east in a blink!!

The duration of the whole sighting was about 4 to 5 seconds. My husband and I are avid sky watchers and know satellites, jets and the Space Station when we see them. This wasn't any of those!! Hopefully someone else saw this and reported it somewhere!
