Full Description of event/sighting: Hi, Brian. I thought I'd report this, even though I'm pretty sure there could be a "reasonable" explanation for it. I'm always sure to check the skies at red lights, in slow traffic, etc, to see if anything interesting is going on. Well, on my drive home (traveling south on Terwillager Drive, in south Edmonton), I noticed a plane traveling what seemed to be NWW. It looked like a pretty standard passenger jet, but I couldn't make out any details, save for it's lights. However, as it was passing in front of a fairly large cloud (there were few clouds in the sky at this time), a seemingly stationary light, approximately 3-5 plane-lengths above the plane, and much smaller than the visible lights of the plane, flashed 5 or 6 times. The light was very bright, and noticeable, but small (like it was smaller, but had more output). I could not see anything in its place when it flashed "off," and could see nothing after the plane had moved further on its course. Is it standard procedure for aircraft to "flash" each other like this when they're flying in each others' airspace? Perhaps you've determined the cause of similar events. If you have, please let me know. Thanks

Thank you to the witness for the report.
