Turquoise colored light traveling from south to north performing high speed maneuvers and directional changes.

I was in my next door neighbor's backyard with him at 125 Quinn Ln at dusk. There were two passenger airlines that were approaching for landing at Charlotte Douglas International traveling from North to South. I commented that the first plane was flying lower than they normally do when they fly over our property. I also pointed out the Venus/Jupiter conjunction to him which was in the direction the plane was traveling. Shortly after the first plane passed, while I was looking at the conjunction, I spotted a turquoise light traveling at a high rate of speed from south to north. It would have been to the starboard side of the planes. It appeared to be at a similar altitude as the planes. I’m hoping they saw it and will report to corroborate the sighting. The object was a unique glowing ball of light of a turquoise color, but it didn’t look like a drone which I have seen several times in the area and will make a buzzing sound. I pointed it out to my neighbor. We were both astonished at its appearance, speed, and behavior. Neither of us have ever seen anything like it. We watched as it appeared to be traveling at an incredibly high rate of speed from south to north and was completely silent. It made a few sudden directional change maneuvers which would not be physically possible for any aircraft that I am aware of, especially at such a high rate of speed. We were in awe at what this unusual object was doing and didn’t have time to photograph it. The sighting lasted approximately 10 seconds. I took a photograph shortly after the sighting just so you can see our vantage point. The object traveled from near the Venus/Jupiter conjunction on the left and we lost sight of it as it went behind the house on the right.
