Bright red lights hoovering over Santa Clarita

I was walking my dogs when I noticed a bright red light. Round shape. The light was travelling from west to east at a slow pace. The light stopped travelling east at some point just north of the Santa Clarita Valley. As it hovered it lost altitude and began to hover at about 2,500 ft. It would move from left to right in a very slow manner and then make 90 degree turns upward and gain altitude. I watched it for the better part of 30 minutes. There were many witnesses at Costco, both customers and employees. The object did not make any sound and had no visible means of propulsion.

The object began to travel away from me in a westerly direction at a very shallow angle, again with no visible means of propulsion. It climbed and travelled at relatively the same speed. Never increasing speed. There were times as I watched that the object would bounce up and down and side to side as if being affected by turbulence. The most amazing thing, as I continued to watch this, is I realized the object left the earths atmosphere when the red object began to "twinkle". I continued to watch it until it was no longer visible to the naked eye.

I am very familiar with the aviation, and I am not aware of any aircraft that behave in that manner.
