|Bright light from the North to South and makes 90 degree high speed turn.
10/03/2019 Just after dusk I was sitting on my patio looking up at the sky and the airplanes crossing it. I noticed one aircraft moving from East to West which is common to see. It appeared to be at what can described as a normal altitude and speed.
I noticed a very bright white light somewhat like a bright star, however it was travelling from the North to the South quite rapidly and looked to be at an extreme altitude. I thought that seemed out of the norm moving from that direction, and I continued to watch. The object was moving several times faster than the commercial airliners. I thought it might be a satellite or the space station and I continued to watch it move towards the South.
After approximately 45 seconds or so the object turned to the West at a 90 degree angle without appearing to change its speed. I still watched the object for a few additional seconds until it disappeared from view.
I have no true idea of what it was and I do not recall ever seeing something like that. I felt uneasy and the hair stood up on my arms. I went inside to tell my wife what I had just seen and she asked me if I was alright since I had a strange look on my face.
Again, no idea what it was, but it was not what I would consider to be a normal experience.
