CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) – KCRG-TV9 received several phone calls and messages on Friday evening from viewers saying they were seeing long rows of lights in the sky west of our viewing area.

The good news: these are not UFOs!

After a brief investigation, we determined that the lights were in fact part of Starlink, SpaceX’s satellite internet project.
