pulsing object seen extremely high in the noon sky...

I observed an object extremely high in the sky that was not moving, seemingly, for several moments at a time. When it did move, it only moved incrementally from left to right, or down. The day of observation was unlimited visibility, with clear, blue sky and puffy white clouds. The object appeared to be the size of a star, tiny as in the eye of a needle. It reflected the sun from time to time, and pulsed when it caught the sun's rays, then dimmed again. his dimness or brightness may have occurred when the object turned or rotated. The object appeared about 60-70 degrees above the north's vertical horizon. It was so distant that the shape of the object could not be determined...however, it was not a plane, and I base that conclusion on the fact that it appeared over a 20 minute time period to have moved only slightly right, left, or down.

This is my first ever observation, I am 81 years of age, with three college degrees, including a Ph.D.
