How are you estimating velocity? Wouldn't you need to know how high it is to estimate velocity? Two objects that are traveling the same speed would
appear to be moving different speeds depending on the height. How can you estimate the height of just a dot?
Also, you can see only a very tiny portion of the path of the object, and you say you are extrapolating the rest of the path -- but the paths you are
showing us that you have extrapolated are all orbital paths. If it isn't a satellite, what makes you think they are moving along orbital paths; it
could be moving along ANY path.
On the other hand, if they ARE moving along orbital paths, what makes you think these are not satellites? Not all satellites show up on those
satellite tracking websites. Some do not -- such as many military satellites.
