UFO out at sea

During a routine weather observation, aboard a Naval vessel during flight ops, I witnessed an object to my east moving at an extreme speed and changing directions rapidly before disappearing. We were about 100 miles off the coast of southern Virginia. It was a white light about 4 times the size of a star. Imagine an airplane at night with it's lights not blinking, but flying a about 5,000 mph. Moving at a 45 degree angle frome east to west it abruptly changed course(it made a right angle) and disappeared. I am a Meteorologist for the Navy and observe the sky on a nightly basis. I have never seen anything like this. It was not caught on our radar. It appeared to be about 5-7 miles away, but I suspect it was much farther away than that.
