to low to be a satilight


Its spelled satellite,
and how do you know it was flying at low altitude ?
How long time did you watch it, and why did you not take picture or video tape it ?

There's an asteroid passing between us and the moon currently. Might be that. You can read about it here.

There is also the X-37 B been doing laps since the 5th of March. Poor thing seems to be cursed because everytime that there has been an earthquake since it has been directly above at the time.


Have a look at this link. Whenever you see something in future, you can have a look and see what is above your location and if the time and flight path fits the bill.

You can go to heavens-above, put in your specific location and find out which known satellites will be visible from your area.

What you decribed -- especially the fade-out at the end and the non-flickering, apparent low orbit -- sound very much as though you saw the ISS (International Space Station). This time of year, the ISS is in a relatively low orbit (see ISS Height Profile) -- around 344 km. If the ISS isn't flying right over your ., it can appear very low, almost as though it is just over the horizon.

It is very bright when close to the observer, and while it's moving (I think I recall 18,000 mph) fairly fast, appears to be a slow, non-blinking starlike object. Note: The lower the magnitude, the brighter it appears, so a -3.4 mag. is VERY bright, and a 1.0 mag is not as bright.
