|Lights with no aviation lights visable every night with large binoculars
I have a pair of Celestron Skymaster 25x100 binoculars and on or about September 1, 2006 at around 9:00pm I was stargazing and tracking airplanes across the sky. At one point I was examining the sky at about 2 or three inches at a time. I was looking towards the northwest and I saw a blue light with no aviation lights flew from nw towards the southeast. I thought it was strange but when on with my observing. About 1 minute later I saw 2 more identical lights and then more and more. I saw at least 6 to 8 identical lights crossing the sky. These binoculars are powerful enough to see galaxies and other messier objects. At first I thought these lights could be sattelites but the research I have done says there are only about 14 sattelites that can be observed from earth and they are only visable for a few seconds at a time as they tumble in and out of the sun's rays. I tracked all of these objects from horizon to horizon. Since then I can go out every night and if I am patient enough, I can see these lights every time. Have you ever heard of this phenomena.
