Was skywatching last night, and saw something very bright transiting the sky. It was moving like a satellite in a straight line but pretty darn fast, I would probably have not given it a second thought but it was about as bright as Jupiter or Venus. Saw several other satellites within 15 minutes and they were all so dim comparatively. I live in an area with pretty bad light pollution so it seemed off for a satellite to be so bright.

During that time I had also been keeping an eye on the air traffic and had flightradar24 up and confirmed there wasn’t a tracked flight where the object was, nor did it have normal aviation strobes.

Also does anyone know a good app to track satellites similar to flightradar24?
