Some satellites appear to dim then brighten or flash but it's caused by their rotation and the sun striking them as they rotate. Satellites allways go in a straignt line. Question ?? what direction do the satellites go and why. South to north and why or why west to east. Any special reason for their direction??

Satellites can blink in and out, but they move in a straight line and at the same speed. The LEO (low earth orbiting) satellites can appear very bright. Sometimes you can also see the space station cross the sky which looks just like a satellite from our point of view.
However, I've seen lights in the sky do some crazy manuvers... things no currently identified aircraft or spacecraft of ours can do. What sits still, shoots off in one direction, stops, then shoots off in another direction?
Sometimes you just gotta see to believe.
Not all satellites move in a straight line, you can have a look at Astronomy forums where people are wondering what they are, some satellites do some crazy man overs, track back on themselves, change direction by 90 degrees, etc.
