Bright light near Orions shoulder.

About a week or so ago, I was walking home from the gas station. I'm not sure what time it was. The sky was clear and I glanced up at the stars. I then noticed a star brighter than any other star near Orion. It was a bright light, it looked like a very bright star, to the right and above the right shoulder of Orion (So his left shoulder if he's looking at us). Orion was in the southwest part of the sky, almost upright, slightly leaning to the right. The bright light stayed lit up for about 10 seconds before it just disapeared. I stared in that spot for about 10 minutes but it didn't return. It was very cold that night so I didn't bother staying outside and continue to watch.

I know what I saw but I have no idea what it was. I have been searching online for answers and stumbled across this site. The only story I have heard that comes close to what I saw is a story someone posted from Hawaii. The only exception is his was a flash that would return every 10 seconds. I saw a light that didn't move (unless it was moving extremely slowly) it stayed lit for about 10 seconds, and then vanished.
