Soundless high speed craft with lights

Looking at night sky to southeast just 10 mins prior to moon rise. Dragonfly flight characteristics at very high speed, almost un-stable. Star like white light that soundlessly covered approx. 1/3 of visible sky in under 1 second.. Each time flight direction changed (5 times), it came to very abrupt stops, flashed a bright unusual color red light 1 time (which over powered the white light) while making a 170 degree direction changes. About half the altitude of 8 to 10 airliners in sky at time of event on easterly take off.

No discernible shape to far away. Disappeared to east at very high speed, straight stable line of flight.
