Saw a weird light move quickly and oddly

Glanced out the window and saw what looked like a bright light of a plane or star flickering, not moving. It looked pretty low to the ground for a plane and wasn’t moving. It was maybe 1 mile away. It then started to move very quick in a straight line and then zig zagged and appeared further away. I ran and got my binoculars and zoomed in and it was a bright white light but couldn’t see anything beyond the light as it flickered. There looked like there was some colored lights in there too but it was further away so I couldn’t see very well because i couldn’t keep the binoculars still enough and it was moving upward. It was then so far away I couldn’t see it with my bare eyes. I then lost sight of it completely. Soon I saw the same light again about 1 mile away from me but maybe 4 miles from it’s starting point in only a few seconds until getting further away and going beyond some trees very quickly. I waited and did see a few flickers of light here and there! but not enough to see its speed or anything and soon it was gone. It was not a plane as it went way too fast, went upward and zig zagged, and I could see no outline of a helicopter or plane and it was low to the ground, lower than a plane would be. And there is nothing out there except an empty field. And it defiantly was not a star. Only one that I know of. Observers were me, 25 and a caregiver and my mom, 48 a caregiver too.
