3 objects appear in the sky, zigzagging and moving in opposite directions, brightly flashing intermittently

Sitting on my deck soaking in the hot tub, with no lights, after sunset, I observed three star-like objects appear in the night sky. I first thought they were satellites, until I realized they were flashing as they moved across the sky; the very bright flashing continued intermittently for the entire viewing. Their course changed, zigzagging along from starting point in the high eastern sky towards three different compass points.

They moved about the same speed as satellites I had seen before.

But the unusual thing about these was the zigzagging and bright flashing.

All three appeared from approximately the same origination point. All three were observed behaving in much the same manner, with the exception that they were each moving in opposite directions; one to the south, one to the north and the third eastward. This lasted for about 5 minutes until they all disappeared. I am used to observing satellites with the naked eye (it’s pretty rural out here on this island) and had it not been for seeing the three appear in roughly the same point in the sky and then begin to zigzag across the sky in three completely different directions, flashing brightly as they moved... I might have thought nothing of it. I suppose they could have been satellites, they could have been reflecting the sun... I don't know about the zigzagging and originating in the same place and moving opposite though.... sure was strange. These were high in the sky, not a chance they were aircraft. They were definitely not meteors either… Weird stuff.
