|The object appeared to be tumbling or reflecting sunlight, suddenly accelerated and changed direction twice before disappearing
I was sitting on my deck looking towards the northeast when a flash of light in the sky caught my eye. The object was at about 60 degree elevation. I observed it for a minute or so with my naked eye and it appeared to be similar to a satellite tumbling in space, reflecting the sunlight as it tumbled. With my binoculars it appeared to have a linear shape but very thin, almost a sliver. It appeared to moving very slowly to the east. I observed it for a few more minutes when a passenger jet flew nearby. It was obvious that the object was far above the jet's contrails. After about 10 minutes, the object suddenly accelerated to the south for a short distance, then made a 90 degree turn towards the earth. My house blocked further observation of the object. The reason I am reporting this is because of the sudden acceleration and changes in direction the object made.
I saw all of this in broad daylight under mostly sunny skies.
