Strange star over northwestern connecticut

I was smoking a cigarette out on my porch. I closed my eyes for a few minutes to adjust my eyes and see the stars better. After I did that I saw scorpio and the big dipper - looked for the north star snd found it - but to the right I saw somethings else, kind of zipping/swerving and moving. It was brighter than the other stars.

I laid out on the grass for about an hour. In that time I was the stsr move unnaturally quickly against the others,, swerving back and forth. I found when I focused my vision on other peripheral stars the UFO would not move, but when I reverted my gaze it would swerve back and forth and end up in a completly different position against the other stars. This made me think it may be an optical illusuon abd that I was imagining it, but the way it moved seemed so extraordinary that I felt I had to report it. If it was in fact not a star or an optical illusion, I feel that it must have been aware when I was looking at it and when I was looking at other stars to map its movements - it only moved when I looked direclty at it.

Another notable thing is that occasionally a light would flash beside the UFO to my left (approxumatlely northwest) - this happened about five times in the course of the hour. It looked like a slight dimmer star, would light up momentarily, and disappear. At first, to me, it looked like a battle (I was raised on star wars) but it later seemed to be a part of a propulsion system, as the UFO would accelerate after the lesser star c into being and dimmed into nothing.
