Out-of-place "star" moved like nothing I've ever seen

I was smoking outside on my deck, looking at the stars like I usually do. I noticed a rather large, bright "star" which looked out of place with the rest of the stars. It made no noise and just sat there for a few seconds. Instantly, it bolted up, which had to have been hundreds or thousands of feet considering the distance it was from me, then bolted to the right and disappeared in the blink of an eye. I consider myself a very logical person and a hardcore skeptic, but this was extrememly odd. There was no way it was a meteor entering our atmosphere because of the angles in which it moved. Falling stars don't sit still, then all of a sudden fly north, then just that quickly, fly west, then disappear. It was not a plane or aircraft that could be operated by humans because at the speed this thing moved, they'd be killed by the G Forces. I have no idea what this was and probably never will...and that bothers me.
