Star-like light with humanly incapable flight pattern

I frequently like to go outside or look out my window at the stars. A few times in the past five months. I have noticed what looked like stars (or indistinguishable from stars) flying across the night sky.

The first time in August 2011, my girlfriend and I watched two fly across the night sky in the Nevada desert, about 100 miles North of Reno. They were far apart and were obviously not a single aircraft. The lights were traveling South-East to North-West at exactly the same rate of speed, never altering the distance between themselves. They took nearly twenty seconds to make their way out of our sight.

The second sighting occurred in November 2011. I was walking to my car after eating at a McDonalds 16 miles South of Seattle, when I looked up and saw a single star-like light traveling across the night sky. I proceeded to watch the light for about one minute as it made it’s way out of my range of sight. I immediately called my girlfriend to tell her.

However, on Christmas night 2011, I was staring out my bedroom window (not far from the previously mentioned McDonalds) when I saw a star-like light flashing between white, red and blue while producing very peculiar flight patterns. The light would jolt randomly within a very small radius as it made a linear path across the night sky. The due path was South-East to North, while the jolts were sporadic in direction. The time for this light to traverse the night sky was also about one minute.

I am sure this object was not an illusion produced by the lights on the underside of an airliner due to the elevation, the apparent movement of the single light and no appearance of aircraft body within the jolting radius. Also, a satellite has no way of producing this random jolting.

This occurrence was by far one of the most bizarre things I have ever witnessed. I even woke my girlfriend up to ask if she could see what I was seeing and she was just as amazed as I was.
