A red dot in the sky orbiting a white dot, while the white dot moves across the sky making circles.

I was watching TV when I noticed a white dot through the window. At first I thought it was a star, but then I noticed a red dot next to it. There were no clouds in the sky. It was floating next to a group of small mountains. Both dots were about the size of pinheads. The red dot was “orbiting” the white dot, moving from its left to right side, around it. The white dot moved slowly down and towards the mountains (my left), then up and continuing left. It appeared to be moving farther away, since the red dot was beginning to be harder to see, but I could still make out when it crossed in front of the white dot. This was about 15 minutes in. The white dot then started to make small counter-clockwise circles, stop, then make small clockwise circles. It repeated this about 3 or 4 times. It was very tiny at this point. Every time I looked away to try and make a phone call, it was hard to locate again. The white dot started to move towards the mountains again (my right), so I ran into the house to look for a better camera than the one on my phone, because it was too small to make out. I was in there for about 5 minutes, and when I came back outside it was gone.
