      I don't think I have yet. Would I know it if I saw one?

      They usually look like a faint star moving in a straight line across the sky. When you see it, you can tell it is not an airplane.

      It's exciting to spot one!

      That's cool Jewels. Haven't seen this before
  • Yes a while ago my neighbor pointed it out. It tracks much faster than any plane and has a steady luminescence.
  • Back in the 60s and 70s I used to sit in the back yard and watch some of the satellites. One was a large balloon about 100 feet in diameter. It came around about every 90 minutes. The last I saw was the current space station. I saw it once.
  • I spend some time at a place out in the countryside, away from light pollution. We can see the International Space Station pass over late at night.

      Always fun to see. You can spot Starlink satellites coming over now too. Looks like 60 ISS all lined up!
  • Yes I have, every night. 😍😎😏
  • How did you know my eye was naked!?! Have you been spying on me?!!
  • The only one I have been absolutely sure of was the International space station when I was camping in the country 2 years ago. It was so bright & fast moving I got my binoculars out to see it more clearly & It was unmistakably the ISS. It looked like a big H & only took about 10 minutes to go completely cross the sky from horizion to horizon . I now have an app on my phone that predicts the path of various satellites on any given night . unfortunately i seldom get phone service at my usual campsite.
  • I have an app on my phone that lets me know when a satellite or the space station is overhead.
  • Yes, there is one visible just after sundown in the western sky just a little above the horizon right now.
