Light that at first appeared as a satellite that instantly made a 120-deg turn & accelerated away

Witness observed a light that at first looked to be a normal satellite transiting the sky, about 45 degrees above the horizon while looking out to sea. It appeared to be moving in a south / southeast direction. After observing this dim star-like light for about 15 seconds, it executed an immediate ~ 120-degree turn to the left (from the witness’ perspective) and instantly accelerated to a velocity that was about 10x its original speed. The light sped away and disappeared within about a second after making the turn.
