Two different reports of blinking light seen by same witness within a years time.

I was playing a game in my backyard with 2 of my friends and I saw a blinking light that caught the corner of my eye. It was just above my trees in the back of the yard. I turned to look at it and pointed it out to my friends. They saw it too. After the object blinked, it would move to a different place and blink again. We just stared in awe. We had never seen anything else like this before. This happened for about 15 seconds. Then it disappeared. We walked around the yard to see if it went anyplace else. We found no trace of it again that night. About a year later (not sure what month), I was at a friend's house (a different friend from the other ones). She lives just out of town by a lake. I was staying the night at her house that night. She was in her room for a little bit while I was laying on the couch in the living room. It was about 12:30 AM. I looked out the window to the other side of the road that's by her house. I saw the same blinking light that I had seen about a year before. It was right in front of the trees across the street. I would say it was about eight or so feet above the ground. It kept flashing its light while appearing in different places. It disappeared after about ten seconds. I was so scared I closed my eyes for a couple of seconds. Then I finally had enough courage to open my eyes again. I looked back across the street and the same thing happened over again! It then disappeared again a short time later, and that was the last time I saw it. I was the only witness to see this sighting.
