MYSTERY WIRE (OKLAHOMA CITY – KFOR) – Oklahoma City residents saw something astounding shooting across the Wednesday night sky.
Many saw a line of lights they saw in the sky between 9 and 9:15 p.m. local time.
Was it a UFO? A family of spacefaring, super-sized fireflies? A giant ellipses that fell off a sentence in The Book of Cosmic Giants and ended up drifting through space?

Nope, it was something else entirely, but something with a very cool name, according to KFOR Chief Meteorologist Mike Morgan.
The mystifying string of lights are actually space exploration company SpaceX’s 60 Starlink satellites.
