Rumbling red light in the sky with a bluish-purple tail moving very fast and changing direction instantaneously.

I was looking at the stars and heard a subdued, very deep, low rumble. My eyes scanned for where it was coming from and I found something in the Southern sky approximately 20 degrees from the plain of the horizon. The object appeared to be moving West at a high rate of speed, in an instant it was moving East at a similar speed. It was a red dot bluish-purple hue emanating from the back of it. The object then jutted back in a Western direction for a moment followed yet another direction change which appeared to be straight up for about 5 seconds, then West again. After this the rumble disappeared and it circled South-East and I lost it behind some trees.
