Flying stars, not shooting stars, I know the diff...

I see these almost every night with the naked eye. Just now 2 star like objects moving in a south to north fashion were just spotted. These objects always appear to be moving stars and sometimes if straight over head they will start burning real bright, then dull back down. Some people try to say their satellites but I find that hard to believe when I see 13 of them in a 50min period, with the naked eye. The only way to describe it is a moving star that can be seen approaching at a 45degree angle sometimes and leaving on the horizon as far as possible with binoculars sometimes. The second one seen tonight wasn't quite straight over head but off to my left and appeared to get brighter and lighter, within a rhythm. This is along the Chattahoochee River and they always appear to be going north-south or south-north. If the skies right they can be seen every night. Oh yea, the sky was perfect this evening and two jets traveling north-south came over spraying a very thick trail within a 10 min period straight over head. 10 min later a large jet flying south-north but between their two trails passed over head. Someone tell me what these flying stars are, that move at a constant speed every night. I live near the Troup-Heard Corridor and south of West Point Lake, in the town where the famous Valley, Alabama, UFO pic was taken, and know the guys in the local media that covered it then.
