Hi, we live in the country here in Australia and often watch the jets as they fly over us. Tuesday just gone I was outside with my hubby walking around and looked up as a jet was flying over us heading towards Adelaide(our closest city) flying south east when I noticed a silver round object flying behind the plane back from its jet stream. We could see the plane very clearly , the silver round object followed along and moved off to the left and then moved slightly to the right and then back to the left and disappeared behind the clouds. My hubby could not see it but it was quite visible behind the plane. I could not understand what it could have been. Don't know if satellites look like that? Do satellites move around like that? Have not seen anything since or before over here, but will be watching more closely from now on as we have the most wonderful view up there, so clear and the stars go all the way to the horizon as my aunt says. Just want to know what the silver object could have been and behind a plane too? cheers from Australia.
