The Reason Behind This Morning’s Mysterious Lightshow Is Solved! You Can Thank Elon Musk!

Early this morning, people from all over Santa Clara county reported spotting a mysterious string of lights in the sky.

And no, it wasn’t an alien Christmas light show…it was actually Elon Musk!

KRON4 discovered that the string of lights were compliments of Musk’s SpaceX company, which sent up another Starlink rocket two days ago.

The rocket, which launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida, dispersed 60 Starlink satellites into the atmosphere.

But why were the satellites so visible?

SpaceX had an answer for that:

“Starlink satellites are over 60 times closer to Earth than traditional satellites, resulting in lower latency and the ability to support services typically not possible with traditional satellite internet.”

The company also added that eventually you won’t be able to see the satellites within the next week.

Did you see the satellites this morning?
