Usually just after sundown you will see a few low altitude satellites. They are bright because they are reflecting sunlight. They travel either equatorially or polar. They can sometimes be seen just before sunrise. High altitude satellites can be seen in the middle of the night. They look like small stars flying through space. Quite common.
