I made my first possible day time sighting last friday (3rd june, 4pm), as i was watching a plane fly overhead i saw a bight white dot appear one side
of the plane, then i then poked my father who was on his cell phone at the time and pionted up at it, it then shined a few more times (i mean
flickered brighter) before disapearing, must have only been viewable for a 10-15 seconds in total before disapearing. Father saw it too luckily so i
know it was there, disapeared before i could make a snapshot attempt with my phone.
Problem is this: I checked a web sites tracking of claimed 360 satellites (
) and it claimed not a single one,
including the iss was over my area of sky at the time.
Presumably only a few large satellite can been seen on a VERY clear blue sky day due to the atmophere and sunlight, if it wasnt the ISS, could have
been a normal satellite and i just happend to be looking exactly in the right place at the right time? Night time sightings of satellites usualy last
a while, a few minutes as they wizz overhead this was very breif.
If anyone thinks its relivant i could find out the direction it was moving, as i remeber clearly where i was sat at the time.
