PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Some viewers contacted WPTV asking about the string of lights seen crossing the night sky Thursday evening.

It's not UFOs or a shower of meteors. It's a satellite tracker that’s part of SpaceX’s Starlink project.

On Friday, the Starlink satellites will be flaring the skies again with bright visibility at 8:44 p.m. lasting about 5 minutes.
