Ohio Residents See SpaceX Satellites Flying in Low Orbit

CLEVELAND, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – We’re looking skyward more often.

Maybe that’s why some Ohio residents saw lights in the sky after sunset Sunday evening.

But they weren’t balloons.

Astronomers like Jay Reynolds at Cleveland State University says SpaceX launched a series satellites on Saturday.

And they say people were seeing the satellites reflecting the sun as they flew in low orbit.

They appear as a string of lights, working their way into higher orbits.

Some 2000 SpaceX satellites will be used for high speed internet connectivity as part of the StarLink program.
