Aerial light makes turns not possible for aircraft.

While walking home from a friends house in suburban Akron, I saw what appeared to be an aircraft light in the sky heading west. It was a single point of light with no distinguishable features.

What made the event notable is that it made a sharp 90 degree turn to the south and then a second or two later another 90 degree turn to the east.

There was no slowdown or gradual turn, it was an immediate and sharp change in direction unlike any aircraft I'd ever seen.
