Red / Orange light in a fixed position

Sitting in front of my computer, I just happen to stare out of my bedroom window to see this small reddish/orange speck of light in the clear blue sky in a fixed position. I stared at this light for about 5-6 minutes in the same fixed position and then I lost sight of it. I could not find it for at least 2-3 minutes and then all of a sudden I see the same light in a slightly different position of the sky and a lot further away (much higher altitude). The light was still reddish/orange but very small. This time it seemed to move in a zig-zag pattern but not going in any particular direction. I lost sight of it after about 15 minutes. I went back to my computer wondering if it was a satellite or a bright planet/star - certainly was not an airplane. After maybe another 10 or 15 minutes later I look up and there is the light again in the first original position I had seen it - Only this time it was a white speck of light (looked like a star)! Again, it stayed in the same spot for a while and then disappeared and again showed up and was at a much higher altitude.
