This may be seen as "way off topic" , but Arto's observation of a high 
flying a/c is a common problem for sky watchers in areas of high traffic 
density

As an aid , regular observers might wish to consider the software 
PlanePlotter  http://www.coaa.co.uk/planeplotter.htm
Its a PC based a/c tracking programme which also gives a sky view 
[MySky] showing not just air traffic around the observers location , but 
also a star chart plus visual satellites in real time.
