Free moving single light floating above Phoenix in the middle of a lightning storm

From the northern suburbs of Phoenix looking south towards the downtown area I clearly saw a single red light zig zagging through the sky during the middle of one of the most intense lightning storms Ive ever witnessed. At first glance I thought it was a firefly caught in the illumination of a distant street light, but then I realized that there was no light in the direction I was looking.

What convinced me that it was a craft of some sort in particular was seeing the other 2 lights that were clearly planes of some sort with the red and blue wing lights flashing that were flying around the edge of the storm. In comparison to those this light was just a single solid orb that seemed further into the heart of the storm. It moved around for about a minute and then dipped towards the ground where my view was obscured by a neighbors house. I watched for about an hour more and saw nothing similar, even after going outside for a clear view of the entire storm.
