Cant comment on the flat box cylinder unidentified flying humanoid thing... but your description of the night sky needs some comment.

So i decided to look to my right and look for the dimest of stars because i knew those were the real ones..
As a general rule, you'll only see a handful of satellites on any given night, and its usually the lower, closer ones.
Brightness plays no part whatsoever in determining if it is a star or satellite. Movement is your best clue. Satellites move across the sky,
stars stay in the same place.
Some satellites are bright, some are dim, most are too faint to see.

(The only exception is geostationary satellites which dont move from your point of view, but are 99.999999999% of the time too faint to see anyway.)
