SpaceX satellites are being mistaken for UFOs by people across the world

Increasingly growing 'train' of satellites upsets astronomers

A train of man-made lights are roaming across the sky.

If this was 1993, we’d be a little freaked out.  Some people still are not realizing that these are just some of the 1,000 satellites that will make up Starlink broadband satellites coming later this year.

The satellites are nothing more than high speed (literally) routers that are flying above the globe.  Over 60 more will launch later this week and continue to light a tear in the darkness of space above us.

So far, the Starlink network has been mistaken for UFOs across the globe.  Keep watching the skies. SpaceX’s network is expected to be completed in 2024 and will consist of 4,400 satellites.
