You make up you own bullshit. My favorite is that NASA let me controll a satelite from my laptop.
The truth is that there are 66 communication satelites (Iridium) orbiting Earth and their trajectories are predictable. They pass overhead everyday and sometimes their antennas reflect the sun light direct over us....the results is sometimes a very bright moving star.
This is the link showing the dates, time, brightness, altitude and azimuth. Just type your location and you get the upcoming flares.

Love Heavens Above, I've been using that site for a while...I've seen the ISS pass over a couple times now. Very cool stuff.
