    My guess is that perhaps you are seeing two or more different sats
    entering and leaving the shadow (in different directions)at nearly the
    same location. I have seen two sats appear from virtually the the same
    point in the sky within a second of each other, my daughter (who is
    five) said "they both exploded out of the Moon!" which was nearby.
    I have seen as many as four naked-eye sats "in the air" at once, and as
    many as 20 in one evening. 
    Hope this is helpful.
