Satelite object with some strange movement. Satelites don' t do this. do they??

I was road tripping from San Fran to Port Angeles, Wahington. I took the 101 as far north as route 42s in oregon. I was in no rush and camped at several places for several days while on the road. One of the places I camped was Harris beach state park north of Brookings Oregon, on the south coast.

It was about 1.45 am and i had all my gear set up and had just fed the dog. I layed down on the picknic table to watch the stars, the night was very clear and the stars were beautiful. Then as i was looking strait up I saw an interesting object that was moving slowly in the sky i thought it was a satelite. During my trips across the counrty i have seen many satelites and have even tracked them through websites. This object that i thought was a satelite was that high up, just a dot,it had a red tint and was definatly not in our atmoshere. After The object had caught my eye for about 5 seconds it did an amazingly fast j turn. Moved in the different direction for another few seconds and then dissapeared. The j turn is the best i can explain it. The turn was not a sharp angle but kind of like a loop. I didnt see anything else like it the rest of the night. It definatly sped up for the loop, during the loop and then slowed down again before it dissapeared.

what did i see? sattelites dont do that. do they??
