Strange meandering craft pulls near 180 before streaking exit

My mother and I were out enjoying the night on the deck. Spotted a few meteors, played with Google sky map nothing particularly out of the ordinary happening. I was following a line of dense stars, I assume is the milky way, when a saw the light. It was just a dot same size and color as a star but slightly less bright. It emitted a steady glow with no flashing or indications that it was manmade aircraft. The "star" was drifting to the south east following a straight path faster than a plane. Speed estimate around cruising fighter jet speed. The craft continued this path for about 5 mins until it began to flicker. I picked the craft back up not far from where it faded it became slightly brighter after this and shot like a laser beam for just a second to the west and was gone.
