Bright Star changes direction at high speeds

I live in Bakersfield CA and i was wondering if anyone saw anything weird in the eastern skies on the 12th of this month.

I saw what seemed to be a BRIGHT orange star, at first. Then it started to travel what looked like straight down, (resembling a meteor or asteroid) and had a tail or vapor trail.

It made some strange 90 degree turns at high rates of speed and continued this behavior for at least two hours. It looked like it was it was somewhere around Edwards AFB which makes me just a little skeptical but still i dont know of a human occupied craft that could perform such maneuvers.

Please right me back with a response or suggestion on what this might be.

Thank you

(P.S.--Shortly after first observing the object military aircraft were seen flying directly over my house, my GF and I both observed this even for about 2 hours)


Possible sighting of Mars. PD
