You Missed It? Elon Musk’s Satellite Was Visible in Sky Over Brookfield
What a time to be alive.
Sometimes 2023 feels like a nightmare, others times a technological dream. Monday night (2/13/23) was somewhere in the middle as a strange light formation appeared in the skies over Brookfield and the rest of Connecticut.
Normally, people would be breaking their necks to come up with a reasonable explanation for the lights that does not involve extraterrestrials. But this astronomical wonder came on the heels of three UFO's being shot down by U.S. and Canadian forces the week prior.
With tensions high and eyes fixed on the heavens above, someone was bound to confuse satellites with another UFO. That someone was my friend Matt who took these photos and videos. He got so excited about the light formation that he was filming the action and calling me simultaneously. After Matt took the video below, he posted it on social media and the real answer came in. These were 55 of Elon Musk's Starlink satellites lining up in the night sky.
According to NBC CT, there were more light shows as the week went on. The satellites were visible each evening, with last night (2/16/23) being the last chance to see them, this time around.
While the Elon Musk's tech would have been exciting any other week, it became no big deal for most. With the satellites visible from points all across the country, I expected to see an endless stream of photos/videos on social media but most ignored the event. People just want to see spaceships not the over sized plaything of an international billionaire.
I've been reading about and studying America's history with UFO's for many years. There is not a documentary that has been done on the topic of UFO's or extraterrestrials that I haven't seen so I have a wealth of information that I can reference in a discussion about it. But I've found myself explaining this all to a bunch of newbies and that is frustrating.
Where would a person begin? Do you discuss the theoretical science behind this? Do you talk about the U.S. Governments long-history of documented lies about UFO's and extraterrestrials? I've found there is no good answer because the same thing keeps happening. These bandwagon UFO fans are only stringing you along long enough to make a joke about aliens or tin-foil hats.
We'll see who is laughing when you have an alien posted up at your crib eating all the Hot Pockets and watching Rom-Coms with your girl. Actually, none of us will be laughing because if extraterrestrials do come here, they may not be friendly. At least that is what Stephen Hawking had to say. The genius astrophysicist was once quoted on the matter, saying:
If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn't turn out well for the Native Americans. We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn't want to meet.
Keep your head on a swivel y'all, it's alien season! No one is safe, everyone is lying and Rihanna is pregnant! I added that last piece because I wanted to keep the entire crowd interested in what I was saying. I know the fate of the world can be boring to a large portion of you.
