Australian anomolous object observation

I live in a mining camp while at work in Dysart, QLD.

I had just finished tea and was walking back to my room with one of the work mates when I observed a bright light in the sky traveling south/south-east to north/north-west at approx 3 times the speed of a commercial airplane.

The size of the object gave an appearance of being slightly larger than a pea and my estimation is that it was approximately 15,000 feet in the sky.

I observed this object initially thinking it was a satellite but its brightness and jerky forward motion was strange enough for me to comment to the work mate how unusual it was, and that's when he also took notice.

After the 1 to 1 1/2 minutes travel time it veered of in a 45 degree angle directly away from me to due south and took 2-3 seconds to reduce to a pin point and then disappear/blink out.

No alcohol was involved before this sighting and I am not on any medication nor use illicit drugs.
