I was out observing tonight with my Orion Skyquest 8" Dobsonian. I was observing the moon, when I happened to notice a string of satellites transiting the moon. It is not abnormal for me to observe satellites in earth orbit that transit the moon with my scope but it is usually one at a time. I did not have time to count them but they appeared something like this. ssss ssss ssss It was either three or four in a row separated by a bit of space, like I have illustrated above. Does anybody have an idea of what these satellites are and what they are used for?
