Non-satellite object grows brighter in evening sky and then flies away.

I was looking at the night's sky over the Tacoma area and watching what I thought was probably a satellite. I was watching it traverse the sky and all of a sudden it started getting brighter and brighter.

It got brighter to the point that it was like having a flash light shown right in my face. A very fine white light, but extremely bright. Then, it suddenly changed direction and flew across the sky and out of my view literally within a second.

The time was 2:45 a.m. on July 31st 2014.
