Re: Satellite trails?

Wow if those are in fact satellite trails I"ve never seen

I'm pretty certain that's what they are. I've often seen but never photographed (only recently taken up photography) them when up in the Scottish Highlands. Weather permitting, the skies are very clear there with little light pollution. We stay not too far from Faslane, the UK's Trident nuclear sub base and you can clearly see loads of satellites tracking overhead there!!

However perhaps someone with more knowledge in this area might be able to clarify/confirm what these streaks might be.

My first thought was meteors.  Can you see them with the naked eye?  How fast do they move across the sky?
