If you'd like to check out if it was a satellite, you can use satellite-tracking software-programs. Not perfect by anyone's guess, but it may give you positive results for many of satellites we've got zipping over our heads. My favored program for this is Previsat - from France (in English) - which is free to download and use. Just keep it updated. Here's a link for any interested parties who may be reading this:


It's far more crowded up there than most people realize! McDonalds got to within ONE vote in the US Congress to launch their 'Golden Arches' as a banner going over the night-sky forever - or until someone came along to send it hurtling to a fiery death in the atmosphere.

Have fun!
