Elon Musk: guilty?
According to youtuber and ufologist Mick West, the effect is known as the “Starlink Flare” and is the reflection of sunlight on Starlink satellites from Elon Musk’s company SpaceX. This phenomenon makes them visible to the naked eye on the planet’s surface, reflecting sunlight and causing confusion about UFOs around the world.
According to information from the ufologist, often the same phenomenon is observed at high altitudes by pilots from different parts of the planet. Even in the winter in Brazil and the summer in the Northern Hemisphere, the lights can be even stronger because of the Earth’s tilt.
Currently, Elon Musk’s space company has sent nearly three thousand Starlink satellites into space 550 kilometers from Earth. However, it is worth noting that no official statement has yet been made regarding the existence of the lights seen by Brazilian pilots and residents. FAB says it didn’t detect anything strange.
