    I did manage to see the image, and can say with reasonable certainty that it
    was not this type of event (I have also seen the SOHO images Mike refers
    to).  These dots appear as a linear array with unequal spacing between the
    dots.  I am curious what the exposure times for visible light weather
    satellite cameras would be.  My first instinct was a time exposure with an
    object flashing at a lower altitude.
