Pulsing light looks like a flashing stay but moved away from earth Into distance.About 0430 I needed to use the restroom and notices it was very dark in the house. I thought their must be no moon tonight. I opened my curtain to take a look around and saw a flash about as bright as a medium star. I thought it was an airplane. I kept watching as as it continues to flash about once every 5 seconds or so, I decided to go downstairs and look from outside and noticed that this flash did not move. I used to work in the navy and I know what aircraft look like at night and I knew it was not an aircraft. I thought it might be something else but I have no idea what. I tried to record on my iPhone but it does not show anything. Perhaps it could be professionally edited to show this pulsing or flashing light. After a minute of watching from outside it seemed to become more faint and moved away from me into space. I can't recall how bright it was initially from my bedroom window, I guess because I had just woke up. After the thing was gone a quick streak went across the sky like a shooting star.
