Many people are not aware of the very real and worsening problem of space debris. Here's a Lockheed Martin video that gives a graphic overview of the problem.
For example, when a satellite is launched there are very specific "holds" put into the launch window so that specific pieces of space junk are avoided during the rocket ascent and the injection of the payload into orbit.
In the future, look out for red, amber and green lights in the sky. Not UFOs - traffic lights!
