Moving white "star light" with flash in Georgia sky.

At approximately 11:18 on June 26, 2016, I looked out the bedroom window, as I often do. It faces east. There were stars, as usual. I noticed a pair of stars. They were shining and then one just “went out”. I thought maybe a passing cloud blocked it, etc.. But the sky was clear. About 25 seconds later the “light” switched on again, a little farther south. Then it went off again. twenty seconds later, it appeared a third time a little farther south, then off again. Finally a flash, much larger than the tiny, “star light”. It was lower on the horizon. It was almost like a small explosion of white light or a camera flash, very bright, brief and then it disappeared.
