Red blinking lights darting and surging high in the night sky

While on the second story balcony of my townhouse, I noticed red blinking lights very high in the western sky. They darted sideways and diagionally in a seemly random pattern; staying within the same general area of the sky. Occasionaly they would surge (sometimes two consecutive surges) extremely fast in a direction, leaving a briefly visible trail of light. When an aircraft flying north to south approached and flew past the area of the lights (but at a lower altitude),the red lights moved into the Western horizon and eventually disappeared from my vision behind a tree (at approximatley 9:30pm).
