Beacon type flashes over the Atlantic

Twice in the last month over the Atlantic ocean at Flight Level 360 myself and my First Officer have witnessed a flashing beacon type light at orbital altitudes near the vicinity of the big dipper. The object appears to be very fast based on the frequency of the flash and its location. I just want to know if we may have a satellite with some type of spin on it that would cause this sighting. I have not seen this type of flash from the many other satellites etc. that I have seen over the years.
