    The question has popped in and out of my mind for many years is do
    very Low Orbiting satellites make supersonic noises until I saw a very fast pass of #13576 over my friends house recently.about 25 seconds after the
    pass there was a very soft to medium noise almost like a supersonic jet.
    There were no planes around at this time and I noticed that the satellite is on a reentry path on the 6th.Could it be in the upper atmosphere and seperating the molocules making a supersonic noise?
    Happy Skies!
