I Have no comment on the apparent 90 degree turn.
As to things in the sky dimming, well, that's typical of satellites falling into the Earth's shadow.
More than that, I leave your observation to speculation.
I like the theory of it being nothing more than just a satellite, but the sheer size of the "orb" rules that out.
I don't typically post, but I'm somewhat excited over seeing what I just saw.
I was waking my daughter to the bus stop so she can take the bus to school. It's still dark outside as we walked part of some apartments in our apartment complex. My daughter exclaims, "Look daddy at that star!". I glance up and see a large white "orb" next to a "regular" star. A second or two passes as I'm standing there looking and all of the sudden it starts to dim. My eyebrow is now raised in wonder and I can just make out a small pin light where this orb was located. It started moving directly to the right towards the other star and then directly upwards at a 90 degree angle before dimming completely out.
The time this happened was 7:38am in Norway (I won't disclose where, sorry). Here's a recreation I made of the event in Photoshop to give you a better understanding of what I saw, what happened and how it moved.

Since I have no evidence, It will remain a personal experience. I'm not sure if this U.F.O. is of E.T. origin or not, but I've spent enough time around aircraft and helicopters (which was my first thought, a helicopter with it's spotlight on) to know this wasn't that.
Just wanted to share a neat experience.edit on 9-1-2014 by Auricom because: Edited for clearification.
