small silver/white light , making rapid zig-zag patterns in early morning sky

I looked up at the sky this morning at 5:40, looking north, and I saw what I thought was a satellite- small whitish/silver circle, like a star. Instead of taking a steady path like a satellite, this whitish circle began to make irregular patterns very quickly. It almost looked like a white/silver balloon that was getting caught up in the wind and was blowing from random gusts of wind. It remained the same color and brightness, but would zig zag, then seem to stop, then repeat the irregular rapid movement. I watched it for approximately two minutes until I lost it to the north west.
