Location of Sighting: Mid Vancouver Island, British Columbia Canada
Date of Sighting: September 17, 2022
Time of Sighting: 9:30 PM PDT
Description: On Sep 17th, 2022 at approximately 9:30 PM I saw a string of 17 lights flying in exact intervals apart and in a straight arcing line flying West to East over mid Vancouver Island, BC Canada. The height looked about the height of a passenger plane, and about the same speed. There was no noise that I could hear. What was it?
Note: The witness likely saw Star-Link communication satellites. These satellites have generated a huge volume of UFO reports in the past few months.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.

I saw a straight line of lights last Monday evening 9 – 26 – 2022 at about eight fifteen. They were not evenly spaced & there was quite a gap in a couple spots. They were moving like somebody was pulling a string of lights across the sky. They were going from southwest to the northeast. At the front of the line of these lights, they were fuzzy & as the rest of the lights came to this spot, they all fuzzed out & disappeared. They were not moving fast. I would have to say that after watching videos of Starlink satellites, these lights that I saw, looked very much like that, except that no video I saw, showed any lights fuzzing out & disappearing. I live in McLeod County of Minnesota.
At around 21:30 on September 18th, I saw a string of far apart white lights in the sky going from west to east over the Ferndale, WA area. I just thought it odd that they would all magically appear in the west in the same spot and then all disappear in the east in the same spot without being seen going further across the sky since we were able to see the stars well throughout the sky. I assumed they were satellites.
Yes, you saw Star-Link communication satellites. I have been getting a large volume of reports.
I saw these same objects last night Sep 18/2022 at 9:23 from Qualicum area of Vancouver island. It was strange as they were from one side of horizon to the other and that they moved across the sky so quickly and suddenly disappeared into nothing in less than 3 minutes.
You saw Star-Link communication satellites.
