Tiny white light darts in the Great Plains evening sky!

Last night there was a half moon so there was moonlight in the western sky. As I looked at the stars, there was a tiny white light moving like a satellite. I enjoy watching satellites traverse across the night sky.....but, all of a sudden this tiny dot of light started making sharp angular turns. It darted right, then left, upward, then downward with maneuvers no known craft can do. I have never seen a UFO, but am an avid star gazer (for 40 years) and I am also an amatuer astronomer. In other words, I know what planets, constellations, and other sky objects look like. This strange little light was odd, and, frankly, it kind of frightened me.
