A stationary light. Bright like a star, moved and followed an airplane then took off

Early morning at work I always stargaze using an astronomy app. This morning I was holding my phone up to the sky looking at the app which provides like a star map and there was this bright light and I was literally thinking to myself why isn't this bright star on the star map on this app. Then an airplane which was I mean I don't really know how to judge height or distance in the air from the ground, so this plane was flying you know I would say mid-level there's an airport near here I mean you could clearly see the the blinking like red lights on the plane. Well as soon as the plane flies by all of a sudden this light moves and starts like following This plane sort of pacing it so it does that for I don't know what might have been 30 seconds to a minute it didn't sort of makes a u-turn loops back around towards where it originated and then what I can only describe as it looked like a reverse falling star. Like the thing shot off like at a 60 angle look like it was headed straight up and as it did it seemed it got smaller as sort of started glowing red and leaving a trail and then vanished. And that was it.
