CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -TV9 received several calls and emails from viewers saying they had witnessed a row of dozens of lights traveling in a straight line in the skies over eastern Iowa on Thursday night.
And no, they weren’t aliens.
What viewers were seeing: satellites with SpaceX’s Starlink system, a satellite internet constellation being constructed by SpaceX to help provide satellite internet access.
The system seen on Thursday belonged to Starlink-24.
The system was also seen in the area last December.
