And what harm would it do to double check that it wasn't a satellite. How can you prove anything to anyone (especially hardcore skeptics) when they ask if you've checked something and you reply "oh I don't need to check it looks different".

Most of us seeing these have ruled out satellites.
Simply because they know that satellites don't move at fast speeds and they stay on their path most of which are in geostationary orbit anyways.
The movement of a satellite is very slow when it needs to move. There are no gas stations in space, and satellites are not made to move around the planet at any high speed.
Most Satellites need refueling every 10 years.

To check the website just put what coordinates you are at (there is a map function if you do not know your co-ords.) and it will tell you when sats are passing. The Iridium stats rotate so it will also tell you when an Iridium flare is due. Very spectacular.
Star like with Redish Blue flashing and dramatic movement
We noticed 3 at first, we watched 2 leave the sky in a fire fly type motion. It would be very bright, then go dull and appear farther down the sky again.
One of the coolest events that happend was, the 3rd object that stayed for over an hour, whilst it was moving around from left/right and up/down very randomly, it moved so fast and akwardly that to our vision it looked sorta like a lightning bolt for a split second. Me and my friend both witness these events aswell.
Often at times, the object would fade right out so that you could not see it. Another amazing event was, we noticed the object flash, then it showed a red, then blue light im a strange pattern, then we seen another object appear beside it then shoot off into the sky.
Myself witnessed, the object emitting a lightning like light beside the object that happend a few times, and the color of this light was blue and white. My friend did not witness that part.
Instead of the clips, I will attach my youtube profile wich has all 3 clips I have. The clips were not on the same date as the above desription. The vidoes were on the 17th and 18th of July. All videos were filmed in London Ontario.
I must add, if you guys have anyone in London, or close by. I can garentee 100% they will see UFOs in the clear sky at night. I apologize for the video quality, they were filmed with a pretty bad digital camera. But they are 100% geniune, I have a witness to back it up.
Star-like ufo show up early before sunrise
The Early morning of july16 , i woke up at 4h50am planing doing a day fishing trip^with my friend. Like each day i go put my dog outside and check for the newspaper. but something caught my attention just over my neighbour house. its a red white glow star like, direction west,south-west. The size of the object is 25cen coin. its the only light on sky its a cloudy sunset morning so i could see any star in sky but i see that light away.
i go inside take my cam put in on night vision mode and film it for about 3-4min. then i switch on normal mode to see difference between mode, suddendly the light fade, could see nothing. i run on my backyard with a large view north, north east. after 20-30sec off scanning the sky my ufo show back from a cloud become very bright only white this time.start moving up on the other cloud for hiding with a strange pattern a helicopter or plane cant do. i see nothing after that.
with my job am doing about flying each year on chopper like Astar, md530 its not what i saw.
if Someone around have seeing the same object please report it. its same to be all on north east cost.
Bright white/blue light, silently traveling right to left. Way too fast to be a jet or helicopter
I was sitting in my living room, reading a magazine when suddenly I saw a bright white/blue light traveling very rapidly across the sky, about 40 degrees above the horizon.It was so bright, it was easy to spot at attracted my attention right away.
I saw it out a three huge windows totaling about 15 feet wide and 8 feet tall, where I can see a large part of the night sky. It was quiet in the house, and there was no noise made at all by this object, which appeared to be about a quarter mile away.
It was going so fast, I've never seen a plane travel at that rate before. At first, I thought it was a firefly, but it was far too bright and going much faster than any firefly could move. It only took a few seconds for it to cross completely across my field of view. It moved straight across without stopping.
Silver-blue star-like object
I was preparing to go to bed after watching TV. It was a clear night and I looked out of my window up to the sky as is my habit. It was a clear night and I live in a rural area so there is little light pollution.
I saw a star-like object moving across the sky in a South-Easterly direction. Its trajectory was a flattish curve. I estimate its altitude to be about 20,000 feet but I could not say how big it was. It shone blue/brilliant white. It was certainly not a satellite as it was far too low and it was not a meteor as it did not have a tail, nor did it "flash" as a meteor does in the atmosphere. It was not a jet.
The object was silent and appeared to be moving fast. I went outside and watched it as it went away from me towards the low moon and was soon lost against the background of it.
I can best describe it thus: It was as if the planet Venus, as we see it from Earth, had detatched itself from the heavens and flown off into the void.
Hope this is useful to you.
3 bright orange light
my family and I were sitting outside about 10:10pm. Up in the sky we seen this bright orange ball at first we thought it was a plane on fire. The more we looked at it, it was round and right over the tree line in the cloud. In a second it was gone, a few mins later it appeared to be at a different spot then gone again. About 10 mins later we seen 3 round balls in the sky really bright orange it stay for a few min then gone. This was something !
This sighting is the exact same as I posted about last year. Small tiny little flashing white lights going all ove the sky--then meeting up and flashing bright orange glow very large very bright followed by audible sound.--then very far apart suddenly.
I was arriving home at ecactly 10:20pm EST last night at my home on the edge of town Lafayette Indiana. My home is located right off US Hwy 26 headed towards Rossville IN. I wasn't even looking at the sky--was paying attention to the road and very noticably were 3 large bright orange spheres. I said "here we go again"--it was the same as I reported to MUFON last year. 3 large balls of orange/yellow color, followed by a plane like noise (fairly loud)--and then nothingness---then separately very far apart--like opposite areas of your vision you see very very small white flashing lights. Last time someone posted saying that it is a refueling exercise at Grisson Airforce Base in Peru Indiana--and I could believe that however the speed that they disappear and reappear is like nothing I have ever seen with even military aircraft.
