bright white light the size of a distant star that made eratic movements, and complete stops

On Oct 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, my 2 hunting partners and i observed in the west a white light which looked like any other star in the night sky,then it would move in a straight line to out left. It would then hold its position for 10 or 15 seconds before moving in a straight line upward, where it would hold again, 10 or 15 seconds. Then in would move downward in a arc . It would continue these movements, left or right, up or down, in curving arcs, with pauses in betweeen movements. Some up or down movements also traveled at around a 45 degree angle. WE observed this pinpoint of white light 3 nights in a row, well after darkness had set in. Each night it would be off to the west in the same vicinity but a slightly different spot. It always appeared to be the same size as the stars were. Two of us are retired , the third is a copy machine repairman. With binoculars a faint reddish glow would appear on the edge
