|Bright star that grew larger (approached) and suddenly streaked away at 90 degree angle.
A bright summer night, sitting outside spotting the stars and communication satellites. Companion was focusing a home telescope as I pointed to various bright stars, and then noticed a particularly bright white one that I had not previously seen in that area of the sky. It began to grow steadily larger and brighter until I realized it was actually coming closer! The bright white light seemed to be coming directly toward me for about 5 seconds and then it streaked off at a 90-degree angle and was gone in an instant.
