Strange bright Red light over San Jose

On the night of August 9th 2009 between the hours of 11:30PM and 12:30AM me and my girlfriend observed some sort of U.F.O. It was a red light that did not flash. for about 40 minutes it approached as if a plane would but took way to long to reach us which it never did. it rose upward very slowly glowing brighter and brighter, then very dim for a few minutes then bright again. Then this red light jumped over to our right at the same altitude it was at approx 2 miles from its starting point in the sky. It then began to flash very quickly and got brighter then dimmer flashing, then it decended the distance it traveled over the last 45 minutes or so in about 3 seconds flashing brighter and then slowing down and gettting dimmer, then getting brighter and faster again. at the end of its decent it got dimmer and turned a whitish color and as it was speeding off just disappeared.
