Was curious of a meteor (shooting star) and make a boomerang effect? I was just outside and saw one. I quickly labeled it a shooting star until I saw it head right up towards the atmosphere. It had the traditional tail etc... Just seemed a little odd to see it turn like that.

It's possibly the angle of attack was enough to where the meteor could've bounced off of the atmosphere...

They don't turn, they travel straight. They can break apart but the pieces continue the same trajectory as the main piece. See the Peekskill meteor of 1992 for an example.
