I saw a UFO in the sky while I was on an airplane

On August 18th, 2018 I was on an airplane flying from North Carolina to Los Angeles. When we were passing Denver, Colorado, (or close to Denver, according to the airplane map), I opened my window and saw that there was a thunderstorm a couple of miles away. I was sitting on the left side of the plane in the window seat, and the storm was directly in front of my window. I pulled out my phone to take a video of the lightning because I thought it looked pretty cool from how high up we were. While I was filming, I noticed a flashing red and white light flying. It was flying the opposite direction of the plane I was in. The object was flying in a straight line, and then it started to lower, stopped blinking for a second, and then when it started blinking again, it was up high again as if it had reversed. It then kept flying away. It looked almost like a drone, but because of how high up we were, there’s no way it was a drone or a building light, etc. I also thought it could’ve been! a plane, but because of how quickly it moved, I didn’t think it could be that either. I think I would of been able to see the outline of the plane if that had been what it was also. It was very small and I didn’t see it’s shape because of how dark it was. I caught it all on video though and it still confuses me.
