Too much traffic in the night sky??

last night i was in a village near my town. Because of the absence of the city lights it was a perfect night for sky watching. I didnt had a telescope but I have noticed too many objects moving through the sky at a high speed. Planes usually have one blinking red light, right? These objects didnt. They were very high and moving faster than planes and no sound was heard. Ive noticed 2,3 maybe in a period of 5 minutes between each untill i saw the 4th which had company, it was followed by another craft. Do you have any idea whats happening? I know people will say "come on man its only planes" but trust me these crafts were much higher in the sky and moved too fast. Maybe satelites but im not aware of that big number of satelites in the sky

I see these too. It only takes about an hour of watching the stars to have spotted a few of them. Usually satellites move at a similar speed, but I believe it depends on their distance - gives the illusion that they are moving faster.

However I have seen these objects pulsate, fade out, fade in. Not sure what to think about that. Especially when they are very bright.

I would suggest that unless they begin to move in impressive ways, such as 90 degree angles, remember that there is much space debri and these days hundreds of satellites out in our cosmos.

It is widely known in these circles that the "skys" are heavily populated by non-earth craft.

But there's no easy way to know for sure what you were seeing.

Until the bitter end, conventional people will insist that there is nothing special out there. But you can find many many others who know otherwise. I recommend going straight to someone like George Kavassilas for a good heavy dose of alternative reality medicine. Will do you good!

yes, they change the strenght of their light too but i didnt mentioned that cuz i thought people here will say im makeing this up. 4 of them moved in str8 line and on was changing course just as you said in a 90 degree level. ok maybe 85 but it did...

u might find this a fun read
i think u may have seen some top secret military craft at work as described here

Most likely satellites. Don't forget that with the curvature of the Earth it can look like they're changing course. It's also worth noting there are hundreds of them up there, and they travel very fast. Also, blinking whether in a pattern or irregularly, brightening, fading etc are all common attributes of satellites in orbit. There are various satellite trackers, free to use, online - and also aeroplane trackers, again, free to use - so you can always check these kinds of places to see if something specific is passing over head.

But by all means keep looking. The persistent sky watcher may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse at something that truly defies logic, cos it's out there

99.95% deffinite that its satellites
BUT, it seems you also got very lucky and seen something ive been looking out for for years ... you seen a satellite pair (i would say a noss formations ... but i have no evidence to state it was one of those)

noss formations are groups of 2 or 3 satellites which orbit in a fixed formation with the other satellites, i wouldnt say wether it was or not a noss set, but its very likely ... but alas they are hard to proove as noss sets orbits are classified and very hard to find out by the regular methods.

First, check where you live...any airports near by...also, do you live along a major flight path from point a to point be. For intance, I live in north central NC...we are long many flight paths from south to north and as such, i usually see a lot of high altitude air traffic at night when I am star gazing. Some are stellites...some big ol' 737s.

I do know what a UFO looks like because i saw one back in 1972...not from 37000 feet but from about 100yards. So did my brother and my mom.... shook us up pretty badly, too.

Anyway, I think you are seeing normal air traffic. Some may be UFOs...but at that distance, unfortunately.. it is inconclusive.

i do not understand the context of your reply?

i know where my airports are, i have been watching satellites as casualy as possible with an obcession for the last 4 years. ... If the OP has seen 2 satellites traveling in "a formation" its very likely its a NOSS set. (their are other non NOSS ssatellite sets btw, just not many)

please describe the ufo also, i love hearing this kind of stuff ... i have only ever seen one bona fide UFO when watching a satellite that was very high up and dim ,and it made a u turn .

There is actually, it's fairly easy too. Just check sites like heavensabove or calsky and they give you all the details of any satellite that is passing by overhead. That will account for the vast majority of what he is seeing, of course you get tumbling iridiums which are not listed so are a bit harder to identify but they are all terrestial in origin. Same with aircraft, they are all very easy to track as well.
Once and only once you have ruled all of these possibilities out then you can look into what else it may of been.
After 30 odd years of looking at the stars I have not once seen anything out of the ordinary, there really doesn't seem to be anything else up there.

I think I meant to reply to the OP and hit a reply to you...thus the confusion.... I have fat fingers.

As for the UFO... my mother was taking us to church one evening to practice our Christmas know... the kids put on a play depicting the Nativity.

Anyway, we were going down a country road to church when we saw a light out in a tobbacco field beside the road. Nothing unusual, maybe a farmer getting some late plowing done at the end of was early December....all the leaves were off the trees.

BUT, instead of coming to the end of the field and stopped and went up the side of the trees at the fence line...up and over and back down into the next field... just above the ground..

that freaked us mom sped up....

The light continued to the next fence line...again up and over...into the next field.... since this was a rural road and there was no where to go but continue...we we sped up the light sped up and came parallel to our cam to the end of the field and then up and over the woods at tree top level as the fields ended.

At this point, we were frantic... the light was very bright, very clean and clear...much like a halogyn lamp. There were no sounds, no rotors flapping, no humming noises, no wind bursts or dust or turbulance...just this bright ball of light hovering over us at road side.

We started to go down to a bridge across and creek and back this point, the light having parralleled us followed the topography and lay of the land at tree broke off the chase and ascended up into the clouds and faded away.

When we got to church, the play director noted that we looked as if we had "seen a ghost."

That was about1972 and I was 10 years old... from that day forward my understanding of things changed and i discount nothing to this day.
