Strange boom of light left by the launch of a SpaceX missile over the Atlantic Ocean

It may have an eerie, UFO-like appearance, but the bloom of light in the sky is actually part of the fallout from the SpaceX rocket launch.

The stunning and colorful sight was so mystifying that when it was spotted by US Air Force crew, they said the unusual phenomenon left them “stunned”.

On Saturday, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk launched SpaceX’s 52 Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

Later that day, the stunning footage was captured 37,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean.

Sergeant Christian Magliuca, who was unable to reveal exactly where the photos were taken as they are classified, said he and his crew were ‘confused’ after discovering an unknown light on the roof of their huge transport aircraft.

The 15th Airlift Squadron cargo officer said: “These images were taken 37,000 feet from the deck of the C-17 Globemaster III somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean.

We saw it approaching the horizon and were truly baffled as to what it could be.

“At first, we thought the Artemis release was the one that was constantly being pushed. »

However, the otherworldly encounter was later identified as being linked to the launch of the SpaceX satellite.

sergeant. Magliuca added: “For us, the race lasted about ten minutes from start to finish. Truly a spectacle.

I am a load manager on a C17, so my role concerns everything related to the cargo cabin related to the aircraft.

The pilots and my other partner on the plane were completely stunned.

Several times this year, SpaceX launches have left observers thinking there might be UFOs present.

In June, a mysterious blue vortex crossing the New Zealand sky baffled onlookers who thought its origins were foreign.

The rising column of gas lit up the sky over Nelson, a town on the tip of New Zealand’s South Island, and traveled 750km south to Stewart Island.

However, experts later revealed that this phenomenon was caused by man-made space debris in the form of a dying rocket launched by Musk.

A series of mysterious moving lights that shocked Australians in January have also been blamed on Starlink satellites launched by SpaceX.

ELON MUSK SPACEX brings high-speed internet to the world through its STARLINK family of satellites

Elon Musk’s SpaceX has launched more than 3,000 of its Starlink space internet satellites into orbit and hopes to have 30,000 in the sky.

It forms a constellation designed to provide low-cost, high-speed Internet service from low Earth orbit.

Although satellite internet has been around for a while, it has suffered from high latency and unreliable connections.

Starlink is different. SpaceX said its goal is to provide high-speed, low-latency internet around the world, especially for remote areas.

Musk has previously said the project could give the three billion people who currently don’t have internet access a cheap way to get online.

It will also help fund a future city on Mars.

Helping humanity reach the Red Planet and become multi-planetary is one of Musk’s long-standing goals and what inspired him to launch SpaceX.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Musk’s rival, also plans to launch a constellation of satellites into low Earth orbit to provide broadband access to remote areas, as part of Project Kuiper.

However, astronomers have expressed concerns about light pollution and other interference caused by these satellite constellations.
