Star shaped light turning red then white jumping across the sky split into 3 white lights then returned to red star

My son and I were observing the full moon. We noticed a red light beneath the moon and thought it might be a planet. It disapeared and we continued to drive home toward Cornville. I noticed this red star like object blinking across the sky first red then white jumping rapidly as it changed color. It veered off toward Clarkdale and then split into 3 white lights in a straight line formation. It then went back to being the red and white blinking light and headed over the Mingus Mountains toward Prescott. We tried to follow it but it disapeared.
