An object that appeared to be a satellite, but changed course and speed repeatedly.

On the evening of July 3rd, at about 10:30 PM, I was outside, looking up at the stars, as I enjoy doing, when I noticed what I initially thought was a satellite moving across the sky. The “satellite” then changed course and began to move around irregularly.

It would move in loops and swirls, staying in one general area, changing velocity occasionally. Every now and then I could see a faint shimmering in the area and would sometimes see what looked like another “satellite” moving in a similar fashion, but only for a second or two and then disappear. At one point the object turned red for 2 or 3 seconds then returned to normal.

At one point I saw something flash out in my peripheral vision. It was like a shooting star/ meteor moving towards the original object, yet this “meteor” only moved at the speed of a satellite, much slower than a meteor.

About 10 seconds later I saw another “meteor,” also moving towards the original object, but from a different direction.

I don’t know what I saw but it looked to me like it was a craft involved in some sort of combat with other craft. I was 70 miles or more from any city of any size, the night was quiet. I do not know what it was but I can tell you what is wasn’t: an airplane, a helicopter A Satellite, Swamp Gas, A Weather Balloon, Venus.

I am curious if anyone else has seen something like this.
