Satellites shine because they reflect sunlight (presumably because they are made of shiny, reflective metal). They orbit high above the earth, so for 2-3 hours after sunset and before sunrise, the sun doesn't shine on the part of Earth you are standing on, but it still hits the satellite. This is when you are most likely to see a satellite.
