Duration:4 minutes
Bright flashing light zig zagging across the sky

Went outside 8:30pm, with binoculars, waiting to see the space station.

At 8:37pm saw a very bright light, bigger and brighter than a star, and lower.

The light was flashing rapidly. We thought it was the space station. It came from the northwest going South east. Then it started to crisscross across the sky. Every time it changed direction, 2 lights were visible. Left then right then left then right again, until it disappeared toward the southeast.

Looked up what we would see if in fact it was the space station and this was not it.

We caught it on a cell phone.
