NORTHEAST OHIO (WOIO) - Northeast Ohioans who looked into the night sky Saturday evening may have seen an odd string of lights passing just over the horizon from the southwest to the eastern sky.

It was out-of-this-world cool, but it wasn’t aliens.

Elon Musks’ Starlink G4-3 satellite passed through the area around 6:15 p.m., according to the website Findstarlink.com, which tracks the satellites’ progress through the heavens.

The satellite, which looks like a short train of tiny white lights, was visible for about 6 minutes from between 11 and 62 degrees above the horizon.

Multiple people called WOIO to ask about the odd sight.

Starlink provides high-speed internet worldwide, according to the Starlink website.

There are more than 1,600 Starlink satellites in orbit, according to Space.com.
