The object was traveling at a very high altitude, at first glance I thought it might be a sattelite, but it made a few stops, then a dramatic turn to the east. Visible beyond normal sattelite viewing at sunset, Only explanation I have is the space shuttle, is it up now?

Coming from the north I can make out a high traveling object usually there sattelites, But this object quite a few stops on its north to south trail, there was no atmospheric turbulance or cloud coverage, when the object reached just about to the zenith, it made a dramatic turn toward the east, I was able to watch the object travel east, then again turn to the south, the sun was down enough that it should not have been a reflection, regardless I have witnessed many Sattelites, and a few unexplaind ones and this is one of them. the object seemed to twinkle a bluish to orange color.
