AN UNUSUAL object

I was sleeping outside, and watching shooting stars come and go. My attention was very quickly drawn to a shooting star that came from the south to north. I noticed it was going much faster than any shooting star I had ever seen before or since. It than made a curved 90 degree turn to the west, without losing any speed or gaining any speed. It then turned another curved 90 degrees to the north. Once again it did not lose or gain any speed. I have no approximation on the speed but it carried itself unlike a shooting star in the sense that it went much smoother than a shooting star, if you can understand (like there was 0 resistance to it). It made NO sound and it was a white color with a goldn yellow touch.
