Mysterious Light In Sky Has People Freaking Out

A mysterious light that appeared in the sky in Mexico has left the internet freaking out over what it could be.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it Elon Musk launching himself into space? Frankly, we don’t know the answers to these questions, but people have theories. 

A clip of the mystery moment, which took place at Nobu Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, was shared by TikTok user @nickybeezer, who asked: 'Tiktok, what was this?'

Those behind the camera sound understandably shocked, with one person repeatedly saying: "What the f**k is that?"

It appears to show what looks like a combination of a plane trail and fireworks that disperse into individual lines of light that move quickly across the sky. 

Numerous people offered their ideas on what it could be, with some suggesting it might be a meteor shower

“Leonardo Dicarprio warned us…” joked one commenter, while another said: “Imagine being drunk out of your mind at a Mexican beach and you see this in the sky.”

However, it turns out there could be a pretty reasonable explanation for this all and, funnily enough, it has something to do with the SpaceX founder himself. 

As said by a TikTok user who experienced this strange phenomenon too: “Their reaction is so warranted. I saw this last summer and LOST MY MIND! What a crazy experience. Turned out to be starlink ahaha.”

For those not in the know, Starlink is a satellite internet constellation operated by SpaceX that provides satellite internet access coverage to most of the planet. 

In response to the comment, another person wrote: “These circle around every few yrs but they are mind blowing when you actually see them and don't know what they are.”

This would make a lot of sense, especially since SpaceX just launched another 50 Starlink satellite via its Falcon 9 spacecraft before landing it at sea. 

According to Space.com, this marks the aerospace manufacturer’s eighth launch in 2022 alone.

Prior to this, a Starlink mission of 49 satellites was carried out on 3 February, while a further 46 were launched on 21 February. 

With so much interstellar action going down, it wouldn’t be surprising if this was the reason behind the enigmatic light sighting.

Or, you know, it could always be aliens…
