One red orb moving from left to right up and down , back left and disappeared covering miles of sky in seconds.

My wife , son , and I were hanging out in the backyard checking out constellations and seeing if we could spot meteor activity. A while into looking at and looking up all the stars and different “Starlink” satellites via night sky app , my son notices a red ball so far in the distance it looks like Mars(which is not in our view right now). He says ,” check out that plane “ We all start gazing at the “plane” which STOPPED, DROPPED ELEVATION SLIGHTLY SHOT TO THE RIGHT IN THE MOST PERFECT LINE STOPPED AGAIN , HOVERED. My sons freaking out saying how this is impossible “planes don’t do that dad!” Which I know I’ve been a believer my whole life and haven’t ever had a sighting. He gets his phone out to take a picture and the camera on his iPhone wouldn’t even register it and COULD NOT focus on it. I get my phone out to video it and as soon as I press record it darts out of view and then disappears. CRAZY!!! So I’m thinking everything because I don’t immediately believe anything so I question “maybe a drone” . This was in the western sky moving from south to north and then back south to disappear. Here’s the thing..... we had been watching different stuff planes, satellites, we saw a meteorite.... this thing covered enough air space it would have taken a jet plane a full minute to fly out of view at the distance it was at MAYBE longer so definitely not a drone ! This thing which was a red ball we thought could be mars at first(how far away we could see the light ) moved perfectly UP with no hesitation or wiggle , shot from on side of the sky to the other , stopped on a dime like it made a wrong turn and took off the other way ....to me the lights didn’t appear flashing just a solid red “orb” / sphere /“star” . The event took place in a matter of one or two minutes and covered enough sky from point A to point B and BACK that a jet / drone/ helicopter / anything from this earth would’ve taken minutes to travel it in ONE direction let! alone up down left and right and then completely disappear ou! t of sig ht to never be seen again !.
