Moving ball of light

In Utah, not familiar with area. I was on Rte. 191, near mile marker 88, looking north. This light was very quickly pulsating various colors. Nothing else in the sky looked at all like this. After watching it for a moment, it appeared to travel east..,so I thought it was just a plane, however, then it stopped and reversed direction. Then it zoomed straight up at a very high speed. Then it went diagonally toward the west. It kept doing exactly that, zigging and zagging in all different directions.

I looked at this light through an infrared night vision binocular and could see that this object appeared to be a ball of swirling energy, but also, I could see a few other objects in the sky in proximity to this light that appeared to sparkle for lack of a better word. We observed this for about 20 minutes or so until it zoomed straight up into the clouds and didn't reappear. There was NO sound.

My feeling at first was excitement, then fear. That's when I looked at my phone to see what time it was and actually made a note in my phone of the exact time just in case something odd happened. Like was frightened, but couldn't take my eyes off of it. I tried several different means of recording it, but only my cell phone was able to record it.
