saw a small blinking cloud like object fly directly overhead from my backyard at night.

I was out in my backyard when I had an urge to look straight up overhead into a cloudless calm starry night sky. I was a witness to the "Phoenix Lights" on 3/13/97 and for the last 10 years since then, I have been scanning the sky nightly without with camera close by, but have not seen anything since then... until this night. What I saw is unlike anything I'd seen or heard of before. It was certainly unexplainable. It was way about 5 to 8 thousand feet and moving about as fast as a fixed wing aircraft would be flying. The difference that set it apart from any aircraft is that it looked like a small cloud that was lit up from behind by a white light. As I watched it travel high in the center of the sky, it faded to black and then lit back up again. As it flew over it faded out and again and lit up again in perfect rythem as it headed straight southwards. I ran inside to get my camera but by the time I got back (about 30 seconds) it was too far away to get a shot off. There was no other light other than the one that blinked on and off from behind this cloudlike object. As I watched it fly awy from me, it made a manuver unlike anything I"ve witnesse then went out of sight as it was heading into the southward sky.
