Reddish light moving in a zig zag pattern

In my driveway facing S-SE, looking up higher than the position of Jupiter, the brightest object at the time, looking almost overhead S, I saw a bright, almost reddish light moving, sometimes almost in a zig zag pattern as it appeared to move higher. Up, to almost over the top of my head as I’m looking South. Kept “hopping” not in a smooth movement but almost jumpy. Weather balloon? Watched for 3-5 minutes. Looked away then up again and lost sight. Possibly more at the top (zenith) but if it was what I saw, and the same object, then it was fainter as though moving beyond view. Didn’t appear to move like normal aircraft and it was silent.
