Duration:Split Second
Rotating beam of light

We were on a boat on Inland Lake stargazing. I was looking in a Southerly direction at an angle of about 45-50 degrees into the sky when I saw a flash of light. It was not a meteor or an aircraft. It was stationary and looked a lot like the light one might see if viewing a lighthouse from a great distance away (ie, like a rotating beacon). It flashed/rotated only once. About 30 seconds later I saw it again at about the 7 o'clock position from where it was the first time, just marginally down and to the left of its original position.

Like I said, it was definitely not an aircraft and definitely not a meteor. It did not move across the sky, but rather it just looked like a single rotation of a beacon or very bright light and then disappeared. Altitude is indeterminable.
