In Jammu and Kashmir, people were curious when flying objects were seen along the International Border and the Line of Control in the evening.

However, later the situation became clear. It was the Starrunk satellite placed in the lowest Earth orbit. This is a project of Elon Musk’s company.

Between 6.30 pm and 7.30 pm, the people of Jammu city, including border villagers, saw the illuminated object being made without sound from the roof of their houses. This light was seen in Kathua, Vijaypur and Ramgarh in Samba district and Khor-Pargwal border areas of Jammu district and Mendhar and Balakot areas adjoining the Line of Control in Poonch.

People came to their roofs to see the line of lights running in the sky. After making its video, many people have also uploaded it on internet media. However, the Indian Air Force, along with the army and security forces in Jammu, did not react to the sighting of this light. Usually, action is taken from the Pakistan side when drones and UAVs are seen near the Indian border.

It floats in the lowest orbit of the Earth. Their job is to provide high-speed internet signals to the Earth. It does not require a traditional ground structure. This satellite transfers data using laser beams. Its solar panels sometimes look like lights flying in the night. That was the long light.
