I saw the same object a few days earlier on a pass south of zenith, just
after sunset.  I got around 29 seconds for the flash interval but that
value is +/- perhaps two seconds.   28 seconds would be double your 14

Was your pass in the north part of the sky?   If so, I have a similar one
tonight and it will be interesting to see if I get a similar 14 second
flash interval.
