I fly drones for hobby and even the top end private drones don't look or act like this or capable of such an odd flight.

Red/orange light with less bright white"sparks"around the craft at random intervals.

Appear and disappeared 3 times,each time reappearing 1/4mile(est) away from last pos almost instantly.

Moving southeast at random speeds(slow glide to a hover to faster pace to vanishing and reappearing) last contact about 22:05 headed south/southeast before stopping for 30sec then was just gone.

Was at slightly above the altitude I see aircraft take on approach to Newport News airport
