On 2/5/18 at 6:40pm my wife and I went out to watch the space station fly by. It was going to be a straight overhead fly by.

When we were watching it, at about 70 degrees from us I saw something unexpected. A light appeared just to the south of the station. It looked just like a star had appeared from nothing and lasted maybe 2 seconds. I didn't say anything about it, thinking I would tell my wife later. About 5 seconds later it appeared again. Same thing, looking like a star and lasting about 2 seconds before disappearing again.

Again I didn't say anything. Then my wife says did you see that light. She said she saw it twice, just the same as I witnessed it. It was about 1 inch distance if you took a ruler to measure it the sky, south of the station. I don't know what it was, it just blinked on and then off twice.
