We were outside monitoring the perseid meteor shower last night and i saw a bright flash out of the corner of my eye while talking to me wife. i immediately said "oh, shooting star". 30-45 seconds later, i saw it again and then starting looking that way. i didn't say anything to my wife at this point. while watching, it pulsed again probably 40-60 seconds later. i then pointed it out to my wife and we both began to monitor it. we watched at least 5-6 pulses like this in the same location. it was not moving, but pulsing on some cadence. the pulsing was more like a lighthouse. the light would be off and slowly pulse to a very bright light and then off. the pulse was probably 3 seconds worth total each time, from nothing to bright to nothing. it appeared quite high. many airplanes flew under it while we watched. after 5-6 pulses, it began to very slowly move east. it would stop occasionally, move north a bit and then back east. we could only see its direction by watching for the pulses. there was no visible craft or flashing lights like an airplane would have. only the pulse. over the course of 30 minutes of monitoring, it only moved a total of 1ft of our visibility of the horizon, not very far. no aircraft i'm aware of can do what it was doing. after the 30 minute mark, the light stopped pulsing and that was it. hands down, the most amazing thing we've ever seen.
