'What the Hell is That?': Washington Resident Stunned as Starlink Satellites Streak Across Night Sky

Skywatchers in Washington were mesmerized by a string of lights in the evening sky on May 4, local media said, which were determined to be Starlink satellites launched by SpaceX earlier that day.

This clip from Daffa Azizan shows the satellites in the sky over Lynnwood, Washington.

“What the hell is that,” Azizan says in the video. “Some weird UFO-esque thing in the sky tonight over Lynnwood, Washington. I really thought it was santa lol this is scaring me” he wrote in his Twitter post.
