Instantly spread rumors and discussion of theories of “planetary conspiracy” and “UFO landing” caused the appearance of chains of dozens of moving objects in the sky of Greece.
Alas, however, to the great displeasure and disappointment of fans of all theories and aliens, evenly spaced luminous points in the night sky turned out to be just Elon Musk’s SpaceX satellites.
Bright objects moving in orderly rows in the night sky seriously disturbed the inhabitants of Thessaloniki, Kozani, Voio, Alexandria, Ioannina, Naoussa, Kythnos and many other regions of Greece. Social media just flooded with relevant photos. Netizens asked themselves and eyewitnesses: “What is this?”, “Does this mean that the end of the world is coming.”
As it became known a little later, these are Elon Musk’s SpaceX satellites, which are in low orbit to provide high-speed satellite Internet through the Starlink system.
The launch of the next group of 143 satellites took place on January 24, 2021, and Elon Musk’s goal in the coming years is to put about 4,000 such satellites into Earth’s orbit.
The spectacle has sparked global interest thanks to a dedicated app that predicts when satellites will be visible in each region. The bright spots are likely to be visible tonight, Friday May 7, around 10:00 pm, according to the statement.

In addition to Greece, SpaceX satellites have become visible in other countries, for example, in the US, Iowa, where local media received dozens of calls and emails from citizens claiming to have seen many lights moving in a straight line.
Citizens in panic claimed to have witnessed the “massive arrival of aliens on Earth” that had been predicted.
