Red dot high in the sky moves very quickly and in a zigzag pattern.

The time was about 3am Colorado time. I was unable to sleep, and decided to go outside and smoke a cigarette. We have these reclining chares in our back yard, so I laid down on one and looked up into the sky. I was not thinking about anything special, the usual pressures of life. It was a nice dark, clear night. As I was gazing towards the heavens, I noticed this red "dot". I estimate its height in the sky between 20 to 30 miles up. The reason I estimate its height, is due to the size of the object. I can only compare it to, looking at a laser pointer dot, 30 feet away. While I was staring at this object, I did nothing unusual, at first; I had thought it was a twinkling red star. Then the dot began to move. The dot moved slowly vertical, from it's position. I estimate, about 1 mile. Then the dot stopped. The dot stayed stationary for about 5 seconds then moved at a 90-degree angle, and stopped again. After about 5 seconds the dot moved again, zig zagging at an incredible speed, in a northern direction. The dot stopped suddenly, zig zagged backwards for about 5 seconds, then stopped for about 3 seconds, and moved strait up, and disappeared
