Sighting Details

I was in my back yard at 10:00 pm laying down in a retaining wall just watching the sky, my body was west to east my head was west and i saw a couple of lights moving west to east i dismissed them probably they were satellites 5 minutes later i saw this bright light moving fast then it was hard for me to see it after i stand to take a better look, it moved for a little bit then it flashed once like if it was taking a picture before it disappear in the sky, i was able to see it for a few seconds after the flash. this is my second time seeing this anomaly last time i wasn’t aware this was happening. it happen so quick that i tough it was firefly high in the tree at that time my daughter was with me, the only difference is that it flash 2 times first time southeast and right after northeast of me.
