Strange red and white lights, single object, over Columbus, Ohio 6/27/16

It was a single flying object that I saw (as I came outside from the front door at 11pm 6/27/16 in Columbus, Ohio) when I thought I saw was a satelite. (It was traveling SW.) However this was different. I could only see 2 very close lights together, one RED the other White, of equal intensity (no actual shape unfortunately). There was no blinking. They were rather bright so I thought maybe it was a helicopter. It suddenly stopped its motion and just hovered, absolutely motionless. Then it quickly reversed from its original direction with great acceleration and then stopped again 3 seconds later. (There was no spot light from it ever.) It did this for a few minutes and then quickly flew north. All motion was very angular and when it hovered, which is unlike normal helicopters. I couldnt make out any sound, but there was a lot of background noise being by the highway. It was a clear night sky. No other strange phenomenon occured.

I hope someone else saw it too. Or could tell me what it was!
