SpaceX rocket launch over the Atlantic leaves a mysterious burst of light

Truly a spectacle! Mysterious flare of light over Atlantic Ocean left behind by SpaceX rocket launch leaves US Air Force crew ‘dumbstruck’

  • A strange bloom of light in the sky over the Atlantic Ocean left the US Air Force crew ‘dumbfounded’ over the weekend.
  • Blame was later placed on the SpaceX rocket launch from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida on Saturday.
  • Billionaire businessman Elon Musk SpaceX launched 52 Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit from the station.
  • Later that day, the incredible images were taken by the US Air Force crew from 37,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean.

It may have a spooky UFO-like appearance, but this bloom of light in the sky is actually part of the aftermath of a SpaceX rocket launch.

The spectacular and colorful sight was so disconcerting that, when spotted by a US Air Force team, they said the unusual phenomenon left them “stunned”.

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

It was later that day that the incredible images were taken 37,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean.

Staff Sgt Christian Magliocca, who could not reveal exactly where the images were taken because they are classified, said he and his crew were “confused” after seeing an unidentified flash of light on the deck of their huge transport plane. .

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

“We saw it coming on the horizon and we were really confused as to what it could be.

“At first we thought it was the Artemis Launch that keeps getting delayed.”

However, the otherworldly encounter was later identified as related to the SpaceX satellite launch.

Staff Sergeant Magliocca added: ‘For us, the event lasted about ten minutes from start to finish. Truly a spectacle.

‘I am a loadmaster on the C17, so my role is everything related to the cargo compartment of the aircraft.

‘The pilots and my other cargo wingman were absolutely dumbfounded.

“I think I speak for all of us when I say we will never forget him as long as we live.”

Several times this year, a SpaceX launch has left observers thinking UFOs might be present.

In June, a mysterious blue spiral traveling through the skies of New Zealand baffled viewers who thought it had extraterrestrial origins.

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

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

A trail of mysterious moving lights that shocked Australians in January was also attributed to Starlink satellites launched by SpaceX.

ELON MUSK’S SPACEX BRINGS BROADBAND INTERNET TO THE WORLD WITH ITS STARLINK CONSTELLATION 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.

They form a constellation designed to provide low-cost broadband Internet service from low Earth orbit.

While 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 in remote areas.

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

It will also help finance a future city on Mars.

Helping humanity reach the Red Planet and become multiplanetary is one of Musk’s long-time stated goals and it was what inspired him to start SpaceX.

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

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