Tiny red object ejects small white light

At this location (Perryville section of South Kingstown) date and time I went out to my back yard with my dog to close the bulkhead door to the cellar. I looked up, as I always do out of habit, and noticed what I thought were two stars close to each other. Then, the 'star' began to move slowly and steadily due south. The elevation was very far up, maybe 25k feet. It did not flash and was a kind of reddish color. I thought it might be a satellite because it was not on the usual flight lines for my location. As I watched it head south toward the Atlantic ocean I noticed it either eject a small white light or the light flew from it. The light was white and tiny but stood out against the night sky. It seemed to zig-zag then quickly faded out. The reddish light continued south until it too faded out. The sky was mostly clear with many stars visible. No sound was heard from the object.
