Location: Placitas, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
Satellites don't normally follow one right after another on the same path or seem to move that fast.

Saw what we thought was a satellite, bright light traveling very fast approx north to south. Visible for almost 80 degrees of the sky, almost directly overhead and just west/above Orion. It was followed by a second high speed light we assume was also a satellite in the exact same path about 15 seconds later. Then, about 5 seconds later, there was a THIRD light traveling at the same high rate of speed, but following a west to east track that crossed the path of the first two. The path actually crossed through Orion's belt before it faded out. I've seen a lot of satellites, but I've never seen them so bright, so fast, or visible for so long.
