Unusual Lights spotted in Albuquerque sky at night – Here’s what they mean
Yesterday evening, Albuquerque residents gazing skyward were treated to an unusual sight – a procession of 16 small, white orbs moving in a perfectly straight line. For those unfamiliar with this phenomenon, it was undoubtedly a source of fascination and surprise, far removed from the familiar sights of the night sky in Albuquerque.
Social media buzzed with speculation, with theories ranging from alien spacecraft formations to covert military operations. However, the reality behind this celestial spectacle is far less sensational. The cause can be attributed to the ongoing efforts of Elon Musk.
These celestial orbs are none other than Musk’s Starlink satellites, part of his SpaceX company’s ambitious project to provide broadband internet coverage across more than 60 regions worldwide. While these satellites have been orbiting Earth since 2019, they have only recently become more visible, leading to increased encounters and occasional bewilderment among skywatchers across the US.
Interested individuals can track the Starlink satellites’ progress on this website, and Syracuse has been included in their recent trajectory. This means that residents of Albuquerque are likely to witness more sightings of these satellites in the coming months and years. So, if you missed the opportunity to observe this celestial procession, don’t fret – there will likely be more chances to do so in the future.
