Summary : Object at first thought to be satellite but made vary sudden, erratic and flight manuveurs.

Not very dramatic-but observed an object that appeared to be a satellite moving in a north to south direction. Object had a redish color and suddenly exhibited an increase in speed and changed direction very erratically, disappeared momentarily and reappeared changed direction and suddenly increased speed again. Then the object was gone. Totally duration was approx. ten seconds but as an amateur astonomer I've never witnessed flying patterns of aircraft or satellites like this before.
