Blinking lights but not a plane

On my hammock tonight enjoying a clear sky, I saw a white light blink in the West sky almost directly where I was looking. I thought to myself “”where did that plane come from” and I honestly just thought that I had missed it traveling across the sky. So I locked eyes on it and it blinked two more times in the same position then stopped. I thought it was odd because plane lights don’t stop. So I kept looking. About 30 seconds to a minute later, I saw a brighter light flash slower to the left, about an “arms length” away (when held up to the sky). It was bigger than the first. Now I was really confused. Then after a minute, back closer to the original spot, another flash of a light two times.

I stared for a long time afterwards. I saw two typical small satellites cross the sky. I am use to those. But the other lights were much larger and brighter. I have never seen anything like that and never reported anything in my life.

It may be total coincidence, but when this was happening my dog and other neighborhood dogs were all barking. Before the incident, I heard a plane to the east of me.
