StrangeA mysterious spiral appears in the skies of Hawaii
A blue and diurnal form was seen on 18 January. Scientists think it is related to the launch of SpaceX satellite.
On January 18, a camera jointly owned by the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) and the Japanese news agency Asahi Shimbun, attached to the Subaru Telescope atop Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii, captured something amazing. Captured footage. ,
We see a small spot of light converging into a perfect spiral, which speeds up and then disappears.
According to NAOJ, the incident may be linked to the launch of a satellite by Elon Musk’s SpaceX company, writes livescience, A Falcon 9 rocket actually took off from Cape Canaveral in Florida shortly after carrying a new GPS satellite for the US Space Force. The first stage separated from the second stage about 3 minutes after launch. The second stage then used its smaller engine to propel itself into the satellite’s deployment position.
Once this was done, any remaining fuel was ejected before re-entry, causing the second stage to spin before deorbiting and falling back to Earth over the Pacific Ocean. This created a cloud of fuel crystals frozen in a spiral shape, illuminated by sunlight.
