NOT a sattelite.

I was standing outside smoking a cigarette and watching the sky when I noticed what I thought was a sattelite. Usually when I spot these I like to follow them across the sky, so as I was doing so I noticed it's trajectory wasn't straight.

Just as I was questioning this I raised my arm up to form a straight line of what should have been the trajectory if it were a sattelite. When I did this I watched it turn about 45 degrees from what should have been it's straight line orbit.

As I took note of this I lowered my arm, and when I was done lowering my arm the object was then gone. I checked the sky for a few more seconds for cloud cover, but there was none it was perfectly clear.
