What was with all of the stars lining up?

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — We received a number of questions as to what appeared to be several stars or bright objects lining up in the sky Sunday night.

Austin Moore sent News 8 the video above.

It was several satellites from the SpaceX Starlink program.

According to SpaceX, the Starlink project hopes to provide satellite based broadband internet access around the globe. On Wednesday, April 22, Elon Musk’s company launched it’s seventh batch of satellites into space. There are now over 400 satellites orbiting the Earth just under 200 miles above the surface.

SpaceX was granted permission by the FCC to launch up to 12,000 satellites into orbit, with the hopes of even more in the future.

The satellites should be visible again Monday night pending sky conditions. You can track it from this website.
