Two bright, stationary white flashes over the city during the super moon

I was crossing the Whitestone Bridge during the Super Moon coming into the city. I was staring at the moon as it as a cloud passed in front of it. It was beautiful. Off to the side on my left I saw a very large flash of white light in the distance, which I took to be maybe a helicopter, or light of a plane for some reason. I followed to where I thought the light would be next, say beyond the cloud, or further away or closer to us if it was a flying thing. A few seconds later the clouds had left from in front of the moon, and the light flash appeared again, but in the same exact spot. There was no plane, or building, or cloud, just a flash of white and was very high in the sky or so it appeared from my vantage point.

It was very strange. Strange enough for me to write to this site.
