Now I have a question for all you night sky watchers. Last night, watching for a string of satellites something quite interesting happened. I've had very little luck seeing them here but sky was pretty clear so had hopes. Finally, there is the first one, quite bright, watched it pass overhead for over a minute. Then nothing for a minute or two. Suddenly saw a bright light for less than a second, but was able to follow a faint light for some time. Over time, two more bright flashes then a faint light. All three flashes occurred in the same area. If not for the bright flash, I probably would have missed the faint moving light that followed. So, what was that flash? I'm wondering if I was seeing a reflection of the sun off the solar panels. It makes some sense to me. Has anyone else ever witnessed something similar?
