I think we posess the ability for a satelite to change course and since I canot corroborate it, to me it is unidentified

While watching what appeared to be an orbiting satelite I noticed 2 things odd.

At first it just looked like a star untill I noticed it moving. It did not maintain its orbitol course and made what appeared to be a slow 45 degree turn.It then faded out of view on its new course. I would have to consult an aerospace engineer as this seems to be well within our earthly technologies. The reason this is odd to me is I have been an avid star gazer and in the past have never observed an orbiting satelite change course in a couple of minutes.
