Two different occasions of seeing very small lights at a very far off distance.

I was 12 at the time of my first of two UFO sitings. The first siting occured in about 10 years ago. My brother and I and one of his friends were bouncing on the trampoline during a typical sleepover at my house. My brother got off of the trampoline to go into the house and get a drink. So, while my brother's friend and I waited for him to come back, we both naturally started looking at the stars. We had both spotted the same red light (looked like a star only red). It was traveling at a much faster pace than a jet or any other "earthly" known craft could have gone. Plus, there were no blinking lights that are typical of planes in the sky. Anyway, it was traveling in a straight line for about 2 seconds and then made this small turn and curved back in the opposite direction that it was traveling and sped off so fast that I could not see where it had gone. I have seen this only one other time, about 1 year ago, and it was a white nonflashing light and traveled one direction in at an unearthly speed.
