SpaceX Starlink satellite passes over Paducah

SpaceX's Starlink Satellites in the Netherlands on May 24, 2019.

PADUCAH —  Many of you reported a “straight line with flashing lights,” in the sky, above western Kentucky on Saturday night.

Brianna Clark WPSD and Meteorologist Jason Lindsey did research and discovered it could be SpaceX’s Starlink satellites passing overhead.

They look like a string of pearls, a brilliant trail of moving lights in the night sky.

SpaceX launched the satellites into an initial orbit 273 miles above Earth. They are making their way to a final orbit 342 miles up.

The picture above is what the satellites looked like in the Netherlands on May 24.

Jason Lindsey posted on his Facebook page when you can see the satellites, again, in Paducah.
