I have a question to ask. I can go out any night I want.... spend an hour looking at the skies and without fail I will see white objects going across the sky at very high altitude and apparently very high speed - occasionally these will be very bright and appear to be at a much lower trajectory...
From my limited understanding - most of these white objects (the ones that appear at high altitude) are probably satellites, is that assumption correct? How can I tell the difference between something that is a satellite and something that is not? What are the characteristics?
