Can SETI and other large arrays make distinctions in different satellites?? What I mean is, can each and every satellite be thouroughly looked at? I have heard that everything in orbit from the size of a golfball and bigger is being tracked?? Now, there must be some very big stuff that may be DOD/Military (and who knows what it may be??) and may not be.
But, how does SETI knows exactly what it is, other than the rough dimensions of the object?
