EDMONTON — A shocking sight in the night sky — dozens of lights passing over the Edmonton area that many believed were a convoy of UFOs — is actually the latest launch of SpaceX’s new satellites, astronomers say.
Reports of bright lights in a near-perfect linear formation started to stream in on social media at around 6:45 p.m. Sunday.
“I went outside to have a cigarette and I just started looking up at the sky,” said Todd Goulet, who spotted the strange lights from southwest Edmonton. “All of a sudden, there’s a satellite. Wait a minute, there’s another one…and another one.”
