Strange Light In Sky That Did Not Follow Any Rules Of Astrophysics That I Was Familiar With!

I was driving East on Smith Rd. on the I5 overpass at about 9pm when all of a sudden, I noticed what appeared to be a normal shooting star off to my right side. When all of a sudden it shot back up in a 30 angle and then completely disappeared . It didn't fade out or follow other patterns that I have ever experienced with a meteorite before.

I had not seen any proof of other people experiencing this same event, nor any mentions of it in the local newspaper, so I just convinced myself that I must have imagined it and tried to forget about it over the years until I was at a gathering 5 years later and was speaking to an acquaintance. Somehow the subject came up of seeing strange things in the sky that couldn't be explained. When he started to speak about my exact same experience 5 years ago, I was in shock! There was actually another witness that could corroborate and validate my story!
