After encountering these possible NOSS satellites on a very frequent basis, I wondered if these rarely sighted satellites were actually satellites at all. And because these belong to the military, I was unable to go online and confirm the sighting or even when they were due to go by again.
On the 17th August 2010, I noticed what appeared to be the NOSS satellites, going straight over my head...again. This time I was carrying a green laser pen that is used for astronomy purposes and shined it in the general direction of the two satellites, perhaps hoping for a possible reaction. Almost instantly, the trailing luminous object appears to change travelling speed and climb altitude at what must have been an incredible speed.
Obviously, satellites can't respond like this. I know for a fact they are not birds, Whatever it is, it appears it was spooked and probably wanted to reach safety at a higher altitude, away from the possible dangers that lay below.
