Light in sky seen in same spot (not moving) for at least 10 minutes.

I was walking my dogs on Sunday May 8, 2016, (Clear night with no clouds), when I saw a small flash in the sky just below a star. I initially thought it was a plane because of the way a plane’s lights blink when flying in the night sky. However, the flash did immediately occur again.

I continued to gaze in the same direction when about 30 seconds later, I saw a light flash again in the “same spot”. I thought this was a bit strange. So I took out my iphone and began to video tape the area I saw this light. Unfortunately, the iphone camera isn’t the best, especially at night and the distance this thing was. The light was far away (I think) as you can see on the video. I filmed for about 4 minutes and then contemplated going back to my house to get a video camera. I continued to watch and it continued to blink every 30-40 seconds (an estimate) in the same spot. The light was definitely different from the light from the stars. I decided to film again with! the iphone and the same occurrence was seen. It was really strange. I was pretty excited. I decided to get home to drop the dogs off and to find my video camera. I found it, but no battery charge. I walked back outside to watch again, but I no longer saw the light.

When I played the video for the first time, I didn’t even see the light on the camera, even though you can hear me stating “there it goes again”. I decided to slow the video down with imovie. In a dark room and watching the video in slomo, you can see the flash of light, but to my surprise, there were other lights that blinked on and then off right after the other one. Really weird. I have also zoomed in on the flash of light and it’s completed different from the light zoomed in on a star. It looks triangular.

I can send the video, because I’m sure you have better software to zoom in, brighten, and slow the video down. If I had the software I would do this. I know this isn’t some amazing close up sighting, but it’s definitely odd.
