Red object displaying bizarre flight patterns before shooting directly upwards into space

While smoking a cigarette, I looked up into the sky and noticed an object moving at a far higher altitude than any plane I have seen. The object, which appeared red to the best of my ability of sight, moved backwards, foward, sideways, then in a zig zag pattern. Due to recent numerous similar events, I was convinced the object was far from any flight capable object I had ever seen. When the object changed course west, it stopped near a star and the star began glowing brighter as did the flying object. The object flew east at incredible speed, immediatly stopped, and flew upwards towards space in a similar fashion as a rocket ship, directly upwards. As it was on its path towards space , the clouds behind it became thicker and formed behind the object, covering any way to continue viewing it. Throughout it's flight patterns, it consistently flew behind clouds near the shining star. I highly stress to inform this is not the first time I have seen an object mane! uver such bizarre flight patterns and shoot directly into space, seeming to somehow each time influence cloud patterns.
