It may have a strange, UFO-like appearance, but the blossoming of light in the sky is actually part of the fallout from the SpaceX rocket launch.

The astonishing and colorful spectacle was so mystifying that when it was spotted by the US Air Force crew, they said that this unusual phenomenon left them ‘dumbfounded’.

On Saturday, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk launched SpaceX’s 52 Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit from the Cape Canaveral Space Force station in Florida.

Later that day, the stunning images were captured 37,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean.

Sgt. Christian Magliuca, who was unable to reveal exactly where the photos were taken because they are classified, said he and his crew were “confused” after discovering an unknown light bloom from the roof of their massive transport plane.

15th Airlift Squadron Loading Officer said: “These images were taken 37,000 feet off the deck of the C-17 Globemaster III somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean.

We’ve seen it come close to the horizon and were really baffled as to what it could be.

“At first we thought Artemis’ release was the one that was constantly being pushed.”

However, the otherworldly encounter was later identified as being related to the launch of the SpaceX satellite.

Sgt. Magliuca added: “For us, the event lasted about ten minutes from start to finish. Really a spectacle.

I’m a load manager on a C17 so my role is all things cargo cabin related to the plane.

The pilots and my other partner in the plane were completely stunned.

“I think I speak for all of us when I say we will never forget her as long as we live.”

Several times this year, SpaceX launches have left observers thinking there may be UFOs present.

In June, a mysterious blue vortex traveling across New Zealand’s skies baffled spectators who thought its origins were alien.

The rising gas column lit up the sky over Nelson, a city on the tip of New Zealand’s South Island, and traveled 750 km south to Stewart Island.

However, experts later revealed that this phenomenon was caused by a man-made space junk in the form of a dying rocket launched by Musk.

A string of mysterious moving lights that shocked Australians in January have also been blamed on Starlink satellites launched by SpaceX.

ELON MUSK SPACEX transmits broadband internet to the world through its STARLINK family of satellites

Elon Musk’s SpaceX has launched more than 3,000 of its Starlink space internet satellites into orbit and hopes to have 30,000 in the sky.

It forms a constellation designed to provide low-cost broadband Internet service from low Earth orbit.

While satellite internet has been around for a while, it has suffered from high latency and unreliable connections.

Starlink is different. SpaceX said its goal is to provide high-speed, low-latency internet around the world — especially for remote areas.

Musk previously said the project could give the three billion people who currently don’t have access to the Internet a cheap way to get online.

It will also help fund a future city on Mars.

Helping humanity reach the Red Planet and become multi-planetary is one of Musk’s long-standing goals and what inspired him to start SpaceX.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Musk’s rival, also plans to launch a constellation of low-Earth orbit satellites to provide broadband access to remote areas, as part of Project Kuiper.

However, astronomers have raised concerns about light pollution and other interference caused by these satellite constellations.
