A blinking light which changed intensity, and had a non-recurring pattern, moving in a non-uniform direction, then streaked across sky

Time: approximately 9:45 pm Date: Sept 1st, 2012 Location: Norman, OK Visibility: Unlimited, perfectly clear night While standing outside on my back porch looking up at the stars, a blink of a light in my field of vision caught my attention. I couldn’t immediately see the source of the light because the frequency of the blinking was not regular. Two to three seconds passed and then it blinked again. The object had moved above 6-8 inches (measured from my extended arm). The intensity and size of the light was about equal to the average star. A few seconds later it blinked again, moving about the same distance, and in a straight line moving towards the North East. This time the intensity of the light was greater, about equal to the light of Venus, which also gave the impression that it was larger or moving downward. A few more seconds passed and the light blinked again, much fainter (fainter than the first blink), and the object had moved in a Northern direction (up from its previous direction), and the distance was about 2-3 inches (measured from my extended arm). I followed that! trajectory, anticipating the next blink. As I scanned the area about 5 seconds later, I saw a faint streak of light moving from the last location of the object (approximately) and moving in an Easterly direction (slightly south of east). I scanned the sky for several more minutes but saw nothing else.

The length of the entire incident was approximately 30 seconds. And the object was located approximately 65 - 75 degrees above the horizon, as I was looking toward the North. There was no sound. There were no obstructions in my field of vision. And it was a perfectly clear evening, and visibility was excellent. I had the impression that the object was very far away. The blinking of the light changed in intensity, and its blinking was an irregular pattern.
