Probably a satellite - hundreds of 'em up there.

I see 'em all the time while out using telescopes.

So you can see sats at 200/300/400 miles from you reflecting sun light on a 4 by 2 or 6by6 sheet of metal,you know i dought i could see a light house at 100 miles,and you say you can see sats even in earths shadow now that is some else,what goggles do you have then?

So you say you track these sats with a telescope ? is that right and you see 100sof them?

Yes, there are literally hundreds of satellites that can be seen from the ground - On a night observing I reckon on average, maybe a dozen - though some nights (especially in the summer) I might see many more than that.
Sats can be high enough that, even though it may be night-time for me, they can still be in sunlight.
Naturally, I see far more when the Sun isn't too far below the horizon - such as in the summer, and in the hour or two after sunset, and before sunrise.

And yes, it's very common to see them through a telescope - they regularly pass through the field of view while observing something else.

As for my scopes....
I own several, varying in size from a 4" diameter refractor, up to a 16" Dobsonian.

An 10" or larger telescope will see objects dimmer than you'll see in night-vision goggles.
I've analysed youtube videos in the past (claims of UFOs) taken through NV goggles, which showed stars only to about 9th or 10th magnitude.
A 10" telescope will go as deep as mag 15
Heck, my 8" SCT will get close to 14th mag

No I don't track them - they don't interest me that much.
But if you use a telescope regularly, you see them VERY regularly, even when not actively looking for them.


Check out the website www.heavens-above.com
They give details of many, many satellites, height, direction, timings, etc

In that case, I'll repeat the recommendation of the website:
www.heavens-above.com

You can use that to predict the time and position of specific satellites - should save you a lot of time and frustration in finding one to film.
Plus, you'll have the bonus of knowing exactly which satellite you have captured.

Personally, I like to watch for 'Iridium flares'
There are a series of 66 telcommunication satellites known as the 'Iridiums' - They have reflective arrays attached to them, which reflect sunlight down to the ground in much the same way you can reflect a spot on to a wall using your wristwatch. If you are in the spot on the ground where the light hits, they can get VERY bright for 5 to 30 seconds - even daylight visible sometimes. Usually a few per day can be seen from most locations.
I like to predict them for my grandchildren (my 5yo grandaughter thinks I am 'magic'- LOL) - Last Christmas Eve, there was a bright 'flare' seen from here at a little before 5:30pm - I told my grandkids it was Santa setting off on his rounds rockon
