small light in evening sky moving in south to north path approx 50 to 100 miles ahead of aircraft flying south to north.The light was steady as opposed to stope lights on aircraft. An other aircraft appeared flying east to west. The light seemed to be pacing the northbound aircraft. At or near the point where the flight paths met, the light turned 90 degrees to left very sharply and accelerated upward and disappeared from sight. This sharpness of turn and the sudden increase in speed proved that it was not any thing man could duplicate.
