Many sources contacted us last night and said they saw weird stuff in the skies last night.
Many described it as approx. 50 lights going across the sky.
No, this is not aliens invading Rockford. All thought that would be a sight to see, LOL.
Before I tell you what it was. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who sent in their reports. You Rock! Much appreciated! Always good to see people doing SEE IT, SNAP IT, SEND IT!
I have also saw these lights in the past. And if you had no idea what it was. It definitely will have you scratching your head and thinking WTF could it possibly be. And even when you do know what it is, it still is an amazing sight to see! So when it comes around again (see below) be sure to get out and look up into the sky!
What everyone saw last night was the SPACE-X Starlink.
According to the website, it more specifically the Starlink 6,7.
