Strange bright pulsing light over Horseshoe Bend

While relaxing after paragliding at Horseshoe Bend Flight Park we were in a circle sitting and chatting while enjoying the the night. This is culmination of initial witnesses, and later witnesses.

The first 2 people were looking up at the stars and see a small but bright light (approx 1/4 the brightness of the moon) very high in the atmosphere. It was reported to be "weaving" slowly through the sky. It extended a short beam of light out and would then trace this line to its next location. These motions were small and no more than 1 degree across the night sky.

At this time me and the other 6 people looked up to observe the object. The beam turned off but continued to pulse brightly while making a slow right turn from south to the west. Pulsing about 4 times more before it disappeared. About the time we became vocal about what we were witnessing it disappeared.

I am very familiar with drones, the ISS, aircraft, satellites as well as any other objects and how they look in the night sky. I am also well versed in astronomy. This was absolutely unusual. What it is, I have no idea but it was nothing close to anything I have ever seen.
