Two smoothly flashing lights appear above sky before end of lunar eclipse.

Shortly after the Moon began to leave the Earth's umbra, I noticed 2 star-like lights lying (seemingly) motionlessly to the left of the Big Dipper. They began to flash back and forth, in a seemingly inconsistent pattern.

The flashing was not like that of a commercial aircraft's blinking, but rather a smooth transition from dim to bright. They were exactly the same color as a bright blue star. One light would make a short flash, and then another would a few seconds later, but the pattern was extremely irregular.

The object then began to move across the sky toward the right of the Big Dipper and increased and slowed in speed. I tracked it with my telescope until it made a turn and headed over my roof, where it then disappeared.

Although it was too dark to make out a shape, I may have seen some thin wings. I couldn't make out the rest of the fuselage, however. It was also completely silent. I don't know whether or not the motionlessness was wind, true hovering or an optical illusion.
