KANSAS CITY, Mo. - If you're seeing a strange string of lights in the sky Thursday night, don't worry. It's not aliens invading. It's just a SpaceX Starlink satellite traveling over the Kansas City region. Others in various parts of the central Midwest, like Iowa and Nebraska, are also reporting sightings.

Space Junk Complaints
If you travel to one of the darkest places on Earth, you can see one of the last great things completely unaltered by humans: the entire night sky. But increasingly, even in the darkest places on Earth (which are vanishingly rare themselves), humankind is beginning to interfere with this primordial view.
Hopefully, more for the (mid)morning update . . . STAY TUNED!!!
