Red ball of light over East Los Angeles

We saw a red light in the sky right above us. I t hovered above us but was floating east. The object was about as high as an airplane and looked like a star except it was deep rich redand floated. Then as it moved it began to blink and then it shot to the right and back to where it was before it began to float. It must have travled about 5,000 mile across the sky in about 1/10th of a second. Then it floated back to where it first dissapeared and began to blink again then dissapeared, and just as it did it reapeared on the other side of the sky above us. It floated back across the sky and then blinked itself out.
