unidentified light source seen moving in rapid "zig-zag" motions across clear night sky

Between 9-10 pm on 11/3/04 on a cloudless night, I happened to glance out my kitchen window facing north to look at what I thought might be planets but were probaly just bright stars. I then noticed a third light source which at first I thought to be just a normal airplane moving directly away from me as it did not seem to be moving much.

After a few seconds of watching this light source, it began to move in what I can only describe as erratic zig zag motions, ie. up, down, left and right at varying angles. It appeared to be covering large distances very quickly as it did this. This went on for at least 30 to 60 seconds before it left my field of view.
