Strange Lights sighted in San Antonio Skies – Here’s what they mean
Yesterday, residents of San Antonio were treated to an extraordinary spectacle as a procession of 12 small, white orbs traversed the sky in a perfectly straight line. This celestial ballet sparked curiosity and surprise among onlookers, unaccustomed to such sights in the familiar San Antonio night sky.
Social media was abuzz with speculation, with theories ranging from extraterrestrial visitors to clandestine military operations. However, the reality behind this captivating phenomenon is far less sensational. The cause can be attributed to Elon Musk’s ongoing Starlink satellite project.
These celestial orbs are part of SpaceX’s ambitious endeavor 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 due to their deployment in lower orbits. As a result, skywatchers across the US are increasingly encountering these orbiting marvels, sometimes leading to bewilderment.
Enthusiasts can track the Starlink satellites’ progress on this website, and San Antonio has recently been included in their trajectory. This means that residents can expect to witness more of these satellites in the coming months and years. So, if you missed this celestial procession, fret not – there will likely be more opportunities to observe these satellites in the future.
