Citing unusual trajectory speed (slower than shooting star) and rapid pivot eastward

We are located on NW Hartine Island (WA) and just saw a bright point that looked like a star but it didn't twinkle - it was a solid dot in the night sky, moving from north to south, then in a fast turn-around did a 65 degree turn and headed east.

What was crazy was that it was so high and its speed rapidly increased but not as rapidly as any falling star; if anything, it was about 1/1000 of a falling star.

I have never EVER EVER seen anything like this. We are searching to understand not just the size, rate, and extreme pivot of this object...nothing has shown up so far. Please post if you've seen something!

We are listing the dates as 7/7 and 7/8 because this all happened so close to midnight 7/7.
