How many satellites can you see in one night when you watch stars?

    Under optimum conditions, with a great telescope and on a clear night, you could see up to 25-30 satellites in one night.  Half the year any satellites you might be able to see will be in the Earth’s shadow, though.  Check out the “Satellites” category at the link below to view predicted satellite sightings in your area.

    With the unaided eye, you can sometimes see several hundred. It depends if they are large enough (generally over 20 feet) and close enough to Earth (100-400 miles up). They also have to be at the right angle that the sunlight is reflecting off of them, so you see more toward dawn or dusk rather than in the middle of the night.
