Bright red bigger light with tail of smaller dimmer white lights. Dragon-fly. Unidentified "floating" object?

Saw a big bright red light with a straight line of smaller white lights behind it. It held a perfectly straight line for quite a while and perfectly still in place. Finally moved and the white lights slowly flexed as if in a breeze. It was as if it pivoted with the red light as the head.

It made no sound we had the sunroof of the car open and watched it for five minutes, and yes it is the fourth of July. I would have said it was a helicopter but no sound, it was low enough to see each white light in line, also eventually y the “tail” blew as if a dog tail waging in slow motion. It was as if it were some kind of a kite, but it did not move at all for the longest time and the tail was perfectly straight for for most of the time. The white lights appeared to be on the same flat plane as the red light. parallel with the ground. “A dragon-fly” is how my wife and I both described it. Seemed to be over City Hall.

It was not a firework, but a stationary object.
