I saw star like object appear and then disappear about 5 times within about a 4-5 minute time bracket.

On Saturday night, October 22, 2016, @ 8:40PMCT, I was viewing the sky from the middle Tennessee area, looking in the far North West of a clear sky, and I saw a star like object appear, and then disappear, about 5 times within about a 4-5 minute time bracket.

Then looking slightly to the left a little more to the west, I saw another star like object do the very same thing twice. Both sightings appeared to be stationary, not moving in any direction, simply appearing and disappearing. Both looked just like a star.

I am wondering if these sightings could have been a caused by the reflective surfaces on geostationary or communications satellites?
