Just Too Many Star In The UK Skies

Recreational Astronomers in the UK along with the US reported quite a few bizarre lights in the heavens as enthusiasm grew involving an event happening in the night sky. Guesswork about the UFOs is still growing, but the actual answer to the concern of what actually is occurring in the skies across England and portions of Europe and North America isn’t as difficult to answer as one might believe. Instead, Elon Musk’s SpaceX is taking the credit for supplying perhaps one of the most impressive show of lights ever seen in the evening skies across Europe.

Where did the lights in the night sky come from? There is a very easy solution. Elon Musk appears to have been putting satellites in orbit during the last several months with SpaceX. According to the BBC, the final batch of 60 satellites from 300 already launched by the South African tech entrepreneur were launched in March 2020 and are still an easy task to find during the night sky.

The satellites are quite visible because their present position, relative to the sun and the current orbiting distance of 180 to 300 miles about the earth, makes spotting them very simple. Each and every group of satellites is approximately the size of a flattened car and also has a big solar reflector that is visible to skywatchers in April 2020 as sunlight reflects off of the surface of the solar panels.
