Lights at night

Just a question. Can the movement of a satellite be seen by the human eye? The reason I’m asking is that I’ve been seeing lights moving in the night sky.

I may think that it’s satellites, until Friday night, where we observed, two lights moving in the same line, though the light coming from behind suddenly became bright, and then dimmed out though staying on the same course.

Does this make any sense?

((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information. Of course a satellite can be seen to move. They travel at not less than 18,000 mph. The intensity of a satellite can vary, as well. Tumbling boosters' intensity fluctuates quite prominently, for example. PD))
