Idaho is a hot pot for UFO sightings and strange lights in the sky. In the last week, I’ve seen a lot of people confused and concerned over trails of lights over Idaho, and leaving comments online. Maybe there’s a new fear due to the recent foreign balloons and uncertainty about them or maybe since we had a few days of good weather more people went outdoors and were surprised to see lights in the sky?

Luckily, unless you really like conspiracy theories, the trains of lights in the sky can be easily explained. You can even track them.

Here's How To See When The Starlink Satellites Will Fly Over Idaho

The long lines of lights in the sky are the Starlink Satellites. Over the next few days we’ll get a few opportunities to see them here in Southern Idaho, and thanks to the internet we know exactly where to look and when.

Starting tonight, that’s the next time they’ll fly over us, you be able to see a Starlink Satellite in the western sky for about 5 minutes starting around 7:50 PM. It won’t be very high in the sky, so look closer to the horizon to see it. If you miss the satellite tonight, you’ll get a better chance on the 17th as the satellite will come in from the west to the east and much higher in the sky.
