Location: Clinton, NJ
Shape: Light
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object emitted beams
Satellite-like moving star with bright flashes every few seconds

Watched what I assumed was a satellite, because it was a medium-bright star moving steadily from south to north as they usually do, but then it emitted a bright flash every ten seconds, which I have never seen them do before. When it was directly overhead, the flash was dramatic and bright; about the size of a nickel at armís length.

I would love to know if I was simply seeing a satellite.
