Amateur and professional astronomers alike understand the meaning of the different types of reflected light off an orbiting object. Hopefully, whatever satellites crashed and burned were not NOAAs. The article in Popular Mechanics was providing the facts of the triangular aircraft. Not trying to solve anything. As to the veracity of the information in their articles, PM was one of the few publications that openly discussed Area 51 and its environs. KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
