Flashes of white light in the night sky

Last night I was outside smoking a cigarette, I usually look up at the stars in the night sky when I smoke.

I was looking towards the north and I noticed a white flash of light in the sky, about the size and colour of Venus just after sunset. About 5 seconds later I seen another flash of light in the same spot.

I kept looking in the same spot wondering what that flash could have been and trying to see if I could see it again, finally after about 10 minutes it flashed in the same spot again. It flashed about 5 more times about 5 seconds apart but this time the flashes were getting dimmer, as if the object was moving more north towards the St. Lawrence River. I kept looking for about 5 more minutes but I didn’t see anything else.

Directly across the river from where I live is the the Montreal Trudeau international airport so I’m used to seeing a lot of airplanes in the sky and I can easily recognize them.

What I seen was not an airplane because there were no other colour lights and there was no sound of an airplane and the second and third flashes of lights were in the same exact spot 10 minutes apart.
