Over the last few months my brother and I have been watching a polar orbiting satellite from our patio. It is generally pretty bright, though recently
it has been more dim than normal. It travels South to North, though we haven't gotten an absolute figure for that yet. We always go out shortly after
2am to watch it pass, and we were out yesterday again when we noticed a different satellite that also had a polar orbit, but instead went North to
South. We'd never noticed this over our months of watching. The new N->S sat passed over us within a minute or two of the S->N sat [the one we came
out to see].
Does anyone know what these satellites are? I have an app that tracks satellites, and neither of the polar satellites appear on it.
Also, a side note, we saw quite a light show last night. While watching the N->S sat we saw a bright flash in the sky, and then a few minutes later a
very beautiful, slow, meteor with a white head and red tail. Not sure if this was all just by chance or what, or if there was a known shower last
I'm at 49N 123W.
