A fast moving red dot with large blue crescent-shaped tails in the sky

I was walking back home with my Grandma when I thought I saw a helicopter because it was so bright. I called it that, but I noticed it was going too slow to be a helicopter and too fast for a plane, additionally it was giving off a light that was large.

The longer my grandma and I stared, the weirder it looked. It looked like a bright red dot with large crescent-shaped light blue tails that looked like a meteorite entering the atmosphere, but the tails were so far apart and were moving so slow I debunked it as that.

I took my phone out and tried to get a photo, but it came looking blurry, I took a video and can see it somewhat better, but it soon disappears as if into thin air after a few seconds of taping. I stood there looking for it with my grandma for awhile and we tried to look for it. In the end, it had to be something akin to UFOs.
