hello everybody, hope everyone is still hanging in there. I dont know if this is the right spot to ask a question like this so forgive me if ive
made a mistake.
I live in AZ about 30 minutes away from sedona, the night sky here is usually very clear and bright so im used to seeing meteorites and satellites
all the time. if you stand outside here at night and look up you will see at least one meteor every hour and thats -- at least-- and there is
always a satellite somewhere going across the sky, so Im kind of familiar with these kinds of sightings in my area.
anyways here is the question,,, Can satellites become very bright for a second and then no light at all? its kind of hard to explain, I will see
a regular looking satellite looking object cruising at the usual speed they seem to go and then all of a sudden it shines like a star for just a very
short time, probably right at a second, and after it goes out you cant see anything, like its just gone. I dont know if its just something that I
never noticed until now, or if it something new happening.?? all I know is that I never used to see satellites do that,,,
If any body has seen the same thing, Ill at least know im not seeing things
just to let people know I wish I had a good enough camera to show you what im talking about, it would probably be fairly hard to capture on film but i
bet it could be done, sadly though all i have is a cell phone cam, and we all know how useful those are,
