Flashing blue light over Kailua Kona Hawaii

I was looking for Comet Lovejoy and observed a flashing blue light like a star. It flashed at mostly 8 second intervals. By this I mean the light was visible for less than a second and 8 seconds later it would reappear. Some of the intervals were longer by a couple seconds. The light would move but not in any straight line but randomly around one piece of the night sky. It stayed within a couple degrees of one spot.

It definitely was not a plane or helicopter. It could have been a weather balloon, I guess. The light disappeared after my wife and I watched it for 10 minutes. It could have been flashing before we saw it for some time.

I'm a retired professional as is my wife. We've never filed a report here before. I do not drink or take drugs and have had no hallucionary experiences.
