I wonder how many of these “meteors” are satellites that have finally died and left their geosyncrowhatever orbits?
At 22,000+ miles out they are so far and so fast that they will never come back. By comparison the space station is only 263 miles up. It experiences tiny atmospheric drag and must be occasionally boosted or it will eventually fall. The GS sats carry an amount of reserve fuel so when they get old they can be boosted out even further, out of the way, to a trash orbit. It would take a hugh amount of fuel to slow them down enough to fall back to earth, seriesly ;-).
Some are, but they are generally easily distinguished from meteors because meteors are so much faster than re-entering satellite debris.
