Fast moving object zig zagging over Washington DC

I had just stepped outside on my deck when I caught out of the corner of my eyes, what I thought a falling star and I watched it as it quickly stopped and then moved very fast in a zig zag pattern.

It would stop in between and align itself with other stars in the sky. While doing so, it's brightness would fade and then it would move very quickly again.

The direction that I was facing was East, which is over Washington DC.

What fascinated me the most was how fast this thing was moving, but yet it would stop very quickly and position itself beside a star or a group of stars.
