Not UFOs

     Residents of Jackson Coutny are witnessing a celestial spectacle as SpaceX’s Starlink satellites continue to orbit above the community. The ambitious project, led by Elon Musk’s SpaceX, aims to provide global internet coverage using a constellation of small satellites.

     Starlink satellites have been spotted streaking across the night sky, leaving a trail of lights that captivate onlookers. The unique sight has sparked awe and curiosity among residents, many of whom have taken to social media to share their experiences and images of the bright satellites.

     Many were left confused and with many questions, as they witnessed the string of lights above their homes. Some speculated they were meteor showers, the International Space Station, and of course UFOs.

     Elon Musk’s vision for Starlink is to create a global network that provides high-speed internet access to remote and underserved areas around the world. The satellites in low Earth orbit communicate with ground stations to establish a seamless and high-speed internet connection, even in areas where traditional connectivity is challenging.

     For those who are still curious, the satellites can be tracked at findstarlink.com.
