Ventura, CA. Star looking object with rotating light (lighthouse) changed directions and speed

I was night sky watching with my Generation 3 goggles. As usual I see aircraft and several satellites and sometimes something I can't explain.

Then a bright star looking object appeared from northwest moving southeast at a speed slower than commercial aircraft, and a height of approximately 4000 feet. The object had a slow rotating light like a lighthouse. I watched for approximately fifteen seconds then the object changed directions heading upward.

I watched the object climb at a faster speed over the next thirty seconds with the slow rotating light until it was out of sight.
