Birght flashing light in sky

As we were driving North on I-35 just south of the city of Ames Iowa, my wife noticed a bright flash of light, similar to a giant strobe light in the sky. At first we thought it was a plane, but the flash was on a highly irregular pattern. The light seemed to be quite high in the sky and very bright. It also seemed to hover at times and then move across the sky before it flashed again. The 3 kids in the back saw it as well.
