Intense green pulsing light in sky

Quiet evening, just after midnight, setting out the trash for pickup. At first I thought it was an unusually bright star in the north west sky. As it got closer I realized it was a bright green color (like a green laser). I called my wife out with the binoculars for a second opinion. It was a single point of intense green light that pulsed on and off at different speeds and intervals (almost like morse code at times). It slowly traversed directly overhead in in a southeast direction, slightly changing velocity and direction as it went. Its movement was slower than a passing satellite (taking about 10 minutes from horizon to horizon). When it was overhead it was much brighter than Sirius. Even with binoculars it still looked like a single point of light.

It made no sound, but it did frighten my wife. She was grabbing on to me and hiding behind me. I have never seen her react this way to anything.

This sighting happened over a year ago. At the time we saw it, I documented all the details. Hearing Peter Davenport on the radio motivated me to file this report.
