I had thought of that. I'll bet that given the exact time of the observation, lat/long, and direction of the observations some astro kind of guy would be able to id the sats individually.
Thanks for the info and link. I couldn’t get that site to predict sightings from last summer. Dang. At least I have a plausible explanation. Still don’t understand how I’ve never seen one before and wham, three in a minute! Weird. I appreciate all the help!
