Bright star like object moves across sky in strange patterns 3:30 am in edmonton.

It was in the early morning that me and a friend decided to take a stroll down to a nearby public park to talk and star gaze. The park was an open field with many trees lining the border. The sky was still dark with a clear view of the stars. While viewing the stars, we noticed a very large bright light, slightly larger then a satellite, and its altitude was much higher then that of a plane. This "light" began to move from its position in the sky downwards, at about a 45 degree angle, with a significant speed. This object made abrupt quick movements as though it was shaking. It would occasionally speed up, then slow down. It continued this pattern until it was almost directly above us, and we noted that it was not a plane. It was silent, and every so often a very small tail (ray, or spark) would be visible upon it. The "light" seemed to have a reddish glow emitting off of it every so often. After passing over us, it switched direction and began to hover downwards, slower than before. After watching it for a while longer, it then vanished. Certainly, it was not anything I had ever witnessed before, not a comet nor a satellite. Definitely not an airplane or alike craft. My friend and I are both 22 year old females. We were both 100% sober during this sighting.
