40-50,000 ft heading 255-265 degrees for 4 minutes then sharp left turn to about 160 degrees

Saw large rectangle object leaving large con trail faster than airlines up about 40,000-50,000 ft heading 255-265 degrees and north of Madison Alabama. Watched it for about 4 minutes, then made sharp turn to about 160 degrees, accelerated and was out of sight in about a minute. Clear skies and no wind at that altitude since the con trail was not drifting to the side. There was no sound and no lights. It was very shiny.
