Unusual Light

I was outside with my son watching the Perseid Meteor shower, facing roughly east. I saw a number of meteors, and then noticed a red light about the apparent size of a large star. It appeared closer than a star and was the color of a red stoplight. It was stationary for a few seconds, and then it shot to the left. It left a brief tail and then disappeared. It seemed to just vanish leaving no trace.

This light looked nothing like the other meteors or stars I saw.
