News 6 viewers spot trail of lights

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – A bird, a plane, Superman? Nope. They were Starlink satellites.

News 6 took several phone calls around 9 p.m. Thursday night, asking, “What’s in the sky?”

News 6 Chief Meteorologist Tom Sorrells said he also saw objects fly through the sky while he was walking his dog.

WeReportSpace photographer Michael Seeley was among the Central Floridians who saw the amazing view of the SpaceX Starlink train from the Space Coast.

The Space Coast of FL had an amazing view of the #SpaceX #Starlink train tonight (Thurs) as it flew directly overhead.

This is the last part of the parade as it pased through the constellation Gemini, seen at 4x speed from Melbourne.

SpaceX is trying to create a space-based internet through a network of satellites, with more than 300 Starlink satellites orbiting the Earth.

If you missed the Starlink train Thursday, you have another chance Friday.

The website james.darpinian.com projected Central Floridians will be able to see the satellites around 8:37 p.m. Friday.
