'Strange Lights' Over Illinois Spark UFO Scare

Just hours after U.S. fighter jets shot down an unidentified flying object over Lake Huron on Sunday, residents of Illinois found themselves involved in their own UFO scare.

Social media erupted with reports of a "string of lights" hovering in the night sky over the state, with several posters speculating that they were space ships from another world.

However, it turns out the lights were actually Starlink satellites, which state officials say were launched into orbit on Sunday.

Have you ever seen something in the sky that you couldn't explain?
