Many satellites that are orbiting the earth are mistaken for Flying Saucers. Inexperienced observers obsessed with the subject often discard the practical approach and stay with the fantasy. The subject is interesting but unfortunately there are far too many reports being widely published that are explainable if researched properly. 

This observer claims he checked it for a satellite and wasn't shown on the database he used. But not all satellites are listed, plus a small error in your claimed location will automatically place satellites in the wrong predicted place and at the wrong time giving the impression that it must be an alien spaceship.

To compliment your satellite photos or general observing, meteors occur more often at various times on the year. A full listing of dates is in the book. One exceptional event took place in Russia... 2nd clip.
