Very High Flash of Light

I was on my balcony this evening, looking up at the sky SW of the Moon, when a sudden bright light, like a spotlight, appeared and then quickly disappeared. The light did not move or travel, it just flashed on and off. I observed the area for another five minutes or so but did not see anything else unusual. This flash of light was high up with the stars and bigger and brighter than the surrounding stars. Too high for a drone or helicopter and without the flashing lights of an airplane. I am mystified because I have never seen anything like this in my 50+ years.
