Falling white light made "u" turn and disappeared.

I was driving North on U.S. 23 just past the Geddes Rd. exit. I saw something out of the corner of my eye to the North West. I thought it was a falling star. It was coming down fast at a slight angle when suddenly it turned and made a "U" turn and disappeared. From the time I looked at it, it made a "J" shape making a perfect 180 degree turn and disapearing after going back up about half the distance that I seen it coming down. After I saw it, I realized it didn't have a tale like a normal falling star. It was a bright ball of white light. There was a red ford ranger in front of me and the driver slowed down and was looking up in the same direction as I was, so he must have seen it too. I wanted to report it, but didn't know how until now.
