Thankfully, the planet is not being invaded by aliens and there is no Armageddon-like meteors headed our way.

Instead, the lights were actually SpaceX's Starlink satellites which were set to fly above Beehive State skies just before 7 p.m. The satellites orbit the planet at a distance of about 340 miles.

Earlier this week, SpaceX announced it had launched 48 more Starlink satellites.
