Flashing On and Off Star-Like light over San Jose del Cabo, Baja Sur, Mexico

We were lying on the beach near KM marker 29 on Mexico highway 1 in San Jose del Cabo, Baja Sur, Mexico. I believe it was Friday, October 21, 2001 between 10:00-11:00pm local time.

As I was scanning the sky, I kept thinking I was seeing something flash, but when I’d look in its direction, it would be gone. Then, I finally zeroed in on the area catching my attention and saw what appeared to be a flashing stationary light about the same size as surrounding stars, almost directly overhead. It would flash on and off in about half second cycles for maybe 5 or six times then disappear for approximately 7-10 seconds, before repeating the flashing cycle.

We witnessed this approximately 5-7 times before the last cycle became increasingly dim before it disappeared all together.

I couldn’t recognize any of the constellations accept for Cassiopeia, which was approximately North-East, maybe North-North-East of where we were looking. My first thought was maybe we were catching a reflection of a rotating part of a geo-synchronous satellite, but decided to report it just the same.
