Unexplained "star" in Medina, Ohio, suddenly moves, then takes a 90 degree turn, and flies east.

This took place between the hours of 9-10pm.

Feeling tired, I went to bed at 9pm, leaving my husband to watch television. My eyes were drawn to the outside, as the flashing of the fireflies was quite striking to see. As it grew darker, the fireflies were more noticeable.

I decided to rise from my bed and sit on the floor, resting my arms on the window sill to watch them. Our window provides an eastern view and for a change, I noticed the night sky was clear and I could see the stars. Not having done this in a while, I looked for constellations. My eyes were drawn to a very bright "star" in the sky, positioned over our yard.

I also noticed a jet flying in from the south with its blinking lights and it was too far up in the sky to hear it.

Again, I was drawn to that bright star and wondered if it was a planet. After a while, it started to MOVE. It was closer to the earth than was the jet, because the jet passed behind it. I thought my imagination had kicked in, or that perhaps it simply was the earth's rotation causing this "movement." I used the window pane to gauge the movement and YES, the "star" WAS moving! It moved in a southern direction then STOPPED.

The "star" took a 90 degree turn away from me and headed east at a steady speed. I watched it until it disappeared, which took very little time.

The last time I had seen anything similar to this was in 2013 around 4:45am. I was driving up Fenn Road to Weymouth Road, on my way to work. The object traveled in a southern direction then turned east. This did not look like a star, but was a glowing orange color and had no flashing lights or sound.
