Bangor, Did You See Something Weird In the Sky Saturday Night?
If the video above looks familiar, don't worry! People all across the world are seeing it and it's not UFOs.
Saturday, Bangor and other parts of Maine got to witness the pass-by around 9 p.m.of Starlink, a row of nine satellites orbiting the earth.
Starlink is a product of Elon Musk's SpaceX company that will deliver high-speed broadband internet to Northern United States and Canada this year. The service will expand worldwide in 2021.
When will it be back, you ask?
