While watching a soccer game I looked up 
into the sky and noticed whatlooked like 
two shiny stars in the West about 30-40 
degrees above the horizon. The objects 
looked much like what you expect shiny 
aluminum jets to look like when reflecting 
the sun. As I kept tracking them across 
the sky I happened to notice that these 
two objects were trailing a third one that
made them appear to be flying in a 
triangular pattern.
Because these objects only looked like 
stars I assumed I was watching some 
military jets flying at an extremely high 
altitude. I fetched some binoculars from 
my truck to see if I could make out any 
type of distinguishing features 
(con-trails, etc.), but what I found was 
even more confusing...The objects looked 
just as far away and just as ambiguous as
before!
At this point I couldn't even see them with 
my naked eye, but because of the position 
of the moon (half moon) I was able to 
retrace where I knew they passed. Another 
funny thing happened while I was trying to 
track them -- a jet fly through my field of 
vision. The jet didn't between the objects, 
but it gave me a better idea of the altitude 
of an objects with relation to the 
intersecting jet. The jet was obviously 
flying somewhere between 30,000 and 40,000 
feet and I could easily make out all the 
features of the jet when I refocused on 
the jet.
So this leads me to ask several objective 
questions:
1) Are satellites visible to the naked eye 
from the ground?
2) If you could see a satellite from the 
ground, would you see three so close?
3) Do military aircraft fly this high, and 
if they do, do they that reflective.
I think theres probably a very 
reasonable answer to what I saw and 
I would appreciate any feedback possible.
Thanks.
