What were those lights in the sky above Arizona? (video)

Earlier this month, many witnesses saw an array of lights streaking above the sky in perfect formation.

The lights move too quickly to be a star and are too perfectly aligned to be a meteor shower, so what was it?

Well, it wasn’t aliens.. It was the SpaceX Starlink satellite array, a part of the Starlink Constellation.

On the evening of May 5, reports from eyewitnesses across Arizona reported seeing several bright lights moving above them in a single line.

A similar sighting of these light happened when residents of Phoenix and Tucson seeing lights in 2020.

Starlink is a satellite internet constellation being constructed by SpaceX  providing satellite Internet access.

The constellation will consist of thousands of mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit.

The light parade may be a more frequent sight in the future.
