COLOMBO (News 1st):- Residents in certain areas of the country claim that they had spotted unidentified flying objects. It was reported that a group of bright unidentified flying objects were seen moving in a pattern across the sky at about 5.30 in the evening (January 12) in Colombo, Gampaha, Avissawella, Udawalawe and a number of other areas.

Eyewitnesses claim that the objects were moving at a uniform pace and were moving in large groups.

When we inquired on the matter form the Arthur C. Clarke Institute, they said that the anomaly described by the eyewitnesses could be the Star Link Satellite system.

SpaceX had launched the Star Link Satellite system to provide high-speed internet facilities and provide internet service to rural areas across the globe. SpaceX had launched 60 small satellites into the orbit through the Falcon 9 rocket. The rocket was launched into the orbit in close proximity to earth.

Under the Star Link Satellite system, SpaceX is expected to launch 400 satellites into orbit.

This new technology paves the way for high-speed internet services faster than the prevailing fibre optics internet services in the world. Besides SpaceX Britain’s One Web company also expects to provide similar internet services. They have already planned to launch 6 satellites into orbit.

Director-General of the Authur C. Clarke Institute, Engineer Sanath Panawennage says that the Star Link satellite system operates about 550km above the surface of the earth. He further says that this significantly reduces the time period for the satellites to transfer information to locations on earth and to transfer information from any point on the earth to the satellite.

“With the expiry of these satellites, the number of debris or remains of these satellites in the earth’s orbit will increase. Discussions are being held on this situation severely impacting the use of satellites in the future” – he added.

SpaceX is an American Company. The company is based in California. This American company that was established on the 6th of May 2002 employs 7000 people.
