Strange Lights Over Upton Wyoming Investigated
This was seen over Upton, Wyoming...
What the heck is it?
In the video, which is on Wyoming Through The Lenz on Facebook, you can hear someone say, "What if it's a UFO?"
I can see why people might look at this and have the hair on the back of their next stand-up. If you live in a state like Wyoming you hope to see an actual UFO at some point. So, is that what we are seeing here?
Sorry to tell you while it is in space, it is not an anomaly from "OUTER SPACE!"
More like Space X.
In the video below you'll hear a lady explaining what exactly is going on here:
These are the "Starlink Satellites" that are being sent up to provide worldwide internet.
The big downside to these things is that, if successful, the night sky will be filled with a network of little dots at night that are not stars but low orbit satellites.
While many of us are loving all of this private-sector space activity, the downside is that if we see strange lights in the sky the odds are really good that it's human activity.
Now where the heck is the fun in that?
I would like to lobby SpaceX and companies like them to throw us a curveball now and then so we still think that aliens are flying around up there looking down on us.
Those days were a lot more fun than the days of just wondering what company is up there doing what.
