It's funny when you post incredulous stuff, folks will make fun of it. I know because I posted an incredible personal observation I had at approx 1 am in the morning through my window looking near my deck I observed a couple of strange looking entities. I got all sorts of laughs and suggestions from my beloved ATS folks but both my wife and I observed it so I do believe you when you said you saw something strange.

Experienced sky watchers on SeeSat-L may find it difficult to believe that anyone could misidentify a re-entry as a spaceship, but human perception is notoriously fallible, and no one is immune. Much depends on the circumstances and personal experience. Driving through the wilderness under a pitch black sky, and suddenly faced with a slowly moving formation of brilliant lights can be awe-inspiring and even terrifying. The human mind races to make sense of the unfamiliar, drawing on experience that may be inadequate. Depth perception can play tricks, such that something 200 km away, 100 km long, and moving at 7 km/s, seems to be just 200 m away, 100 m long, and moving 7 km/h - the angularvelocity is roughly the same.
