No one could see the actually object. If you cover it in obvious blue photoshop dot the dot and the rays around it were both digitally implanted.
Next time just put a circle around it.

Satellites usually gradually build up in luminosity and then fade away relatively slowly. I see those all the time.
The thing I've seen made a single pulse of light. A single flash.
Maybe it was the solar panels of a satellite rotating on itself - the panels would only reflect the sunlight back at me at a precise moment. As the satellite continues on its trajectory, the next earth-ward reflection will hit just off of my location, and the flsh wouldn't repeat.
That's the best theory I've got.

The object you saw ... could it possibly have been a short lived Orionid meteor

Iridium satellites are moving, but the flares are singular, stationary from the viewer's perspective.
