bright light played peekaboo behind clouds over sacramento

was looking west from sacramento and saw a very high altitude bright light moving at terrific speed headed south west southwest. (Im former Airforce and know it was faster than anything I've ever seen at that altitude, including the re-entering spaceshuttle)

the objects reflectivity never changed like a plane does as the light plays off it. the light remained constantly bright throughout the rather long distance I saw it travel in that time. The light made an impossible turn to the south and dissapeared behind a cloud for about half a second, and then darted out at exactly the opposite direction, as if it had made a 180 degree turn on itself, instantly, it did this "peekaboo" thing twice before returning to its present south westard course and disapeared finally behind the clouds.
