PennySaint, you are obviously a liar. You claim you "didn't see a thread about it" so you wanted to bring it to our attention, huh? Oh really? You never saw another thread about it?
Someone else pointed out that there was a thread from 2007 on the same subject. Guess what? Penny saint decided to plagiarize their post word for word, complete with identical typos and spelling errors.. Look at the thread from 2007:
Look at the word "operaters" and "pickd". Both of them are mis-spelled. Exactly the same as the OP.
All they did was change the few words, and you can even see where the OP changed the first 3 words, because there is an extra space between the words where they added it.
Next time you want to plagiarize something OP and claim it as your own to get stars, don't lie through your teeth and claim you "never saw a thread about it".
You've lost any credibility with me.

It was in a polar orbit, something that neither the Americans or Soviets were capable of at the time.

Well... I told this story once before but.... I lived in a neighborhood where someone who work for Pratt & Whitney engines and had formerly worked for NASA told me when I was say 13-14 years old that NASA had retrieved "becans' from orbit that were not "ours".. At the time I didn't care about the whole UFO Thing at all.. which is probably why he mentioned it.. people always tell you more when they think you don't care... because there not worried about you repeating it... anyway for some reason I always thought that maybe some sort of Present Day 'Federation Of Planets' ship thousands of years ago put out in orbit a becan with a signal telling any space ship that happened to want to visit, what kind of planet Earth is, the state of Technology on the planet, and what kind of animals are presently on it. Basically a Wikipedia of Earth and it's state of affairs. I also wouldn't doubt there's some sort of "hands Off" message.. just a guess

Well there was a couple of things "shadowing" Sputnik. It was the rocket stages, I remember this but I don't remember why. I'll look for any info to remind me.
Edit to add link. Scroll down to the launch section. The two shadows in orbit were the final rocket stage and the payload fairing. Anyone looking for Sputnik at the time, probably saw the rocket stage, and perhaps the fairing..Sputnik was tiny.

To say a mysterious satellite was "shadowing" "Sputnik and then to say the unknown one was in a polar orbit is nonsense. I'm willing to think that was merely a poor choice of a sensationalistic word rather than a more proper one.
This is a great thread--new to me!

These two statements are mutually exclusive/contradictory:
- Was detected shadowing the Sputnik I craft.
- It was in a polar orbit.

Neat story. I like the Philip K. Dick connection, fits right in with Blade Runner ( do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall & Minority Report.
Just for kicks I searched Satellite Orbital Decay (try it!) and indeed it seems they all eventually fall out of the sky. Though I suppose if a satellite was advanced enough it with an endless supply of fuel (the sun maybe) it could re adjust it's orbit periodically to remain for an indefinite period.
