On the evening of September 8, numerous people across Pakistan reported seeing a trail of eerie luminous objects soaring across the sky.

People were curious by the event, and some even referred to it as a “alien invasion.” However, it was later discovered that the objects were actually Starlink satellites working on a SpaceX project to create a global internet.

According to reports, these satellites have been spotted across the nation, especially in Sindh, Balochistan, and Punjab.

Areeb Shaikh claimed on social media that he saw the Starlink satellites yesterday in Karachi’s skies and mentioned that he had also seen them in Hyderabad in 2020.

Elon Musk’s spaceflight business, SpaceX, developed the Starlink satellite network in an effort to provide inexpensive internet services in rural locations. It plans to add 42,000 satellites to its network.

According to the information, 12,480 of its satellites were launched in January, but only 4,900 are supposedly operational.

In most regions, SpaceX provides extremely fast internet with a minimum latency of 20ms, ranging from 100 Mbps to 200 Mbps.

The satellites can be seen by everyone under a clear sky, but those who are close to the north and south poles might not be able to see them, said the space corporation.
