No, Don, because the objects were burning up in the lower
atmosphere. Amateur and professional astronomers alike
understand the meaning of the different types of reflected light
off an orbiting object. Hopefully, whatever satellites crashed
and burned were not NOAAs.

The article in Popular Mechanics was providing the facts of the
triangular aircraft. Not trying to solve anything. As to the
veracity of the information in their articles, PM was one of the
few publications that openly discussed Area 51 and its environs.
