Last night, many baffled Brits took to Twitter, after spotting UFO-like lights racing through the night sky.
Thankfully, aliens weren’t to blame for the lights, and instead they were satellites from Elon Musk ’s Starlink fleet.
They form a constellation of thousands of satellites, and are designed to provide low-cost broadband internet service from low Earth orbit.
Last night, the satellites were visible for many eagle-eyed viewers across Europe.
Twitter user Arnold van Sebben spotted the satellites from Amsterdam, tweeting: “Just saw, for the first time, a train of @SpaceX #Starlink satellites crosses in orbit above Amsterdam. It was a bit surreal to see them pass by.”
