I was outside putting out christmas lights and i tend to look in the sky to find satellites. while i was staring a very large flash of light appeared. it caught my attention and i focused on that area and i saw it happen a few more times. i got the attention of my husband and he saw the same thing. the flash of light did not stay in one spot or move in a straight line. it popped up in different areas and then it just stopped. it was just a white flash of a light. we thought maybe it was from an airplane but there were no aviation lights. it appeared to be pretty high up because it was directly above us.
