LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Mysterious lights were seen over the Las Vegas Valley early Friday morning.

FOX5 reporter Dylan Kendrick was in downtown Las Vegas just after 5 a.m. when a strand of lights appeared above him in the sky. Most of the lights were lined up in single-file, flying south before disappearing into the darkness.

Nellis Air Force Base was conducting red-flag exercises over the past month, so it's possible the lights are connected to that. FOX5 has reached out to Nellis AFB for more information.

Elon Musk's Starlight satellites have been seen in the night sky looking similarly to the formation Kendrick saw. The internet satellites were last launched Feb. 4.

Those are Starlink satellites. Not a mystery


Bummer. Thought maybe aliens were sending in their calvary to rescue earth at the last minute.
