Saw light speeding across the sky eastwardly, then stopped and flashed for several minutes.

We were observing comet Neowise with binoculars. We noticed a light moving east away from our view of the comet. It suddenly sped up and accelerated very fast, still heading east. At approx 75°above the NNE horizon, it slowed down and stopped. It's light flashed occasionally for several minutes and then we lost sight of it.
