Satellites in the Night Sky

This summer I went with the Shannon's family on their annual summer vacation to Chippewa Lake near Brandon, MN, which is about two hours northwest of the Twin Cities.

Because there is almost no light pollution in this area, we decided to look for shooting stars. I only saw three in the span of half an hour. I thought that I would see more, like one every three to five minutes. However, we did see something else every three to five minutes...satellites! I was not aware that you could see them with your naked eye.
