cylindrical craft with faint lights on both ends zig zags through sky over york, pa, speeding off and disappearing.

my girlfriend and i were arriving home at my house, and she saw a shooting star, and she commented onhow it was the second one she saw with me, and that i never saw them. when we got home, i parked my car, and we got out, and walked slowly to my front door, and i stopped to look to the sky to see if there were any more shooting stars. when i looked up, i noticed 2 faint red lights crossing the sky from north to south at a speed about 3 times faster than planes usually travel. i pointed at it, thinking it was a shooting star, but then noticing that it had a cylindrical form. as i was showing my girlfriend, it zig-zagged quickly, changing direction as it did so. then it continued on its original path for a few seconds, and quickly changed direction again to a north west direction, and accelerated and vanished.
