The X-Files fan in me wants this to be a sign of alien life. However, there's an easy answer to what this line in the sky is and what it is doing. according to, Space X launched 52 Starlink rockets into the sky along the East Coast. Starlink is a new project that will provide faster internet connection to certain parts of the world.

This beam of light might be explainable but remember this one? It might be more difficult to find a reasonable explanation for this object seen hovering over the Taconic in Lagrangeville.

Are they really being seen? What do you think?
