DALLAS — People all over North Texas saw something mysterious in the sky Wednesday night.
If you thought you saw a UFO, you're not the only one. Videos and pictures show what looks like a string of lights in the sky. The lights appeared around 9 p.m. on Wednesday.
So what was it?
Well, it was actually, a bunch of satellites. A SpaceX rocket launched 60 Starlink satellites Wednesday into orbit from Florida.
Starlink is SpaceX's internet communication satellite constellation. The low-Earth orbit constellation is marketed to deliver high-speed internet service to locations where ground-based internet is unreliable, unavailable, or expensive.
The launch added to the 1,318 Starlink satellites already in low-Earth orbit, according to a Florida Today report, citing a spacecraft database maintained by Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist at the Harvard–Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
