Satellite Train Mistaken for UFOs: Catch a Glimpse of the Starlink Network

Summary: The Starlink network developed by SpaceX, consisting of over 4,500 satellites, aims to provide low-cost internet access to remote areas. These satellites form a “train” that can be observed in the night sky. Many people mistake these satellites for UFOs due to their bright appearance. The Starlink train will be visible over Houston on certain nights, ranging from northwest to east or south. In the early mornings, viewers can also catch a dimmer view of the satellite train. Sightings can last anywhere from two to seven minutes. In August, the launch of 15 Starlink satellites caused a surge of UFO sightings in Southeast Texas, leading viewers to share videos and seek explanations for the phenomenon.
