Weird. I can't remember having ever seen any green satellites myself. Of course that doesn't mean there aren't any.
Here's another picture of a green trail... according to the web site, it was a meteor.
BTW, I'm also located in far northern cali... so hello neighbor!
Navigation lights: All aircraft are equipped with a steady light near the leading edge of each wingtip. When facing forward from the perspective of the pilot, the light on the right wingtip is green while that on the left wing is red. The different colors make it possible for an outside observer, such as the pilot of another aircraft, to determine which direction the plane is flying. These navigation lights are most useful at night when it is more difficult to tell the direction the plane is going without them.

A bit long to be a meteor don't you think? That thing goes across the entire visible sky. Not saying it isnt possible... but just odd

Sorry, but the faint red line he's referring to is a whole separate satellite hundreds (if not thousands) of miles away. That one image I posted is a combination of 3 images, all of which had one thing appear in each. The green streak is completely independent and has no other colors associated with it.
Thanks for your post though.
