I was surprised more people aren't talking about this.

On Sunday night we were outside and we all went crazy when we noticed a line of lights in the sky. No one knew what it was but we were all so confused.

When there is something strange in the sky people need answers and that was us this time.

Here is a video of what we saw.

What are the lights?

If what you saw was a row of lights moving in unison, odds are you saw the satellite array called Starlink, which SpaceX operates. Starlink satellites orbit approximately 342 miles (550 kilometers) above Earth and put on a spectacular show for observers as they move across the sky.

It provides low-cost internet to remote locations. A Starlink satellite has a lifespan of approximately five years. The current version of each Starlink satellite weighs approximately 573 lbs.

There's an easy way to find out if you saw Starlink. A website called findstarlink.com lets you plug in your zip code to see when the satellite array was recently visible - and it lets you look up times when it will be visible again.

 What is Starlink?

The Starlink satellite array offers broadband internet access to 54 countries around the world. It was launched back in 2019 and has reached more than 1 million subscribers in December 2022 and 1.5 million subscribers in May 2023.

As of May 2023, there are more than 4,000  small satellites in low Earth orbit. In total, nearly 12,000 satellites are planned to be deployed, with a possible later extension to 42,000.

LOOK: The most expensive weather and climate disasters in recent decades

Stacker ranked the most expensive climate disasters by the billions since 1980 by the total cost of all damages, adjusted for inflation, based on 2021 data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The list starts with Hurricane Sally, which caused $7.3 billion in damages in 2020, and ends with a devastating 2005 hurricane that caused $170 billion in damage and killed at least 1,833 people.

LOOK: The most extreme temperatures in the history of every state

Stacker consulted 2021 data from the NOAA's State Climate Extremes Committee (SCEC) to illustrate the hottest and coldest temperatures ever recorded in each state. Each slide also reveals the all-time highest 24-hour precipitation record and all-time highest 24-hour snowfall.
