As i said in a post on page 2 (i think)... when i say star-like its not actually resembling a star as though it is a fixed point of light moving around. It is a strange "blip", or "ping" of light, like an instant flash the kind you would find on a camera

I am intrigued by these phenomenon as well. I have had several sightings in my life and though they were very different in many respects they stand out in my memory as strongly as do yours. Could it be that over the years, these sightings that we have all been having are not physical in nature, but rather spiritual. The revelations that we are not alone I think come in many different forms.
This explains it for me.
Good luck in looking for yours.

Wow, its interesting reading all these replies. Especially that some people are describing identical sightings.
I didn't think there would be as big of a response as there has been.
While the blinking satellite theory someone mentioned (about thrusters, repositioning etc) is probably the closest thing that is logical to what i saw, it still doesn't add up.
If a satellite was turning due to a thruster or some other propulsion/turning system, it wouldn't double back on itself in the smallest part of the sky or appear to be in the same place twice (within the same sighting) would it? I would assume it would be turning in a huge arc pathway across the sky rather than sharp turns/erratic movements. Confusing as it is, i know a photo or video would be of great help but unfortunately i cannot even pick up the brightest star on the only digital camera i own.
I guess its an excuse to save up for a nightscope of some kind.
Also glad i'm not the only person confused by these flashes of light either.
Thanks for the comments so far people.
