I see these too, but I really thought they were satellites. I think iridium flares are pretty interesting, so I watch for them along with other
astronomical phenomena. I catch this type of moving star at least once a month, I even saw a pair of them a while back, that moved together and
brightened, then faded. I haven't noticed any backward or spinning movements that would convince me these weren't satellites. There are calculators
online where you can track different satellites and when they are going to flare, so next time you see one like this, check the calculator and you can
be sure one way or the other!
