Bright Light - Moved Extremely Fast

I was on a friend's front porch, at the extreme Northern edge of Lincoln City, OR, around 9:30 p.m Dec. 25th 2016. I saw a blue-white light in the distance. It appeared to be a couple of miles or so away. The direction of the light from me was about Northeast. I could see the outer most two stars in the Big Dipper above the light. The other Big Dipper stars were hidden by some fir trees. What caught my attention was the light looked like two lights very close together, then they seemed to be moving right and left very slowly. Also, it seemed much too bright to be a star that low above the horizon. I saw the light for about a minute and then it zipped off extremely fast towards the Pacific Ocean. I was astounded at the speed that this thing moved!
