The mysterious images of a flying spiral on him maunakeathe tallest volcano in Hawaii, has sparked controversy among amateur astronomers and conspiracy theorists over images from the Japanese Subaru telescope.
On January 18th, around dawn, an absolutely stunning scene was captured. From the social networks, the officials of this detection and surveillance system of the skies admit their surprise, because they do not explain what it could be, even if they have some idea in mind, reveals the newspaper ABC of Spain.
What was seen looked like a bright traveling star before changing shape and becoming a larger blob before transforming into a point with a spiral rotating around it, images from the Japanese Subaru-Asahi show STAR Telescopic Camera.
But that swirl in the night sky wasn’t a UFO or spaceship, but instead, reportedlywould be the work of billionaire Elon Musk. It’s that the rare sighting is believed to be related to a satellite launch by Musk’s Space X.
Subaru Telescope, one of the camera operators, said he believes the dazzling phenomenon is related to the satellite’s orbital deployment operation, reports The mail.
According to the Spanish newspaper ABC, there is a precedent linking the appearance of this spiral to the work of Elon Musk’s Space X company. A very similar spiral had already been seen on April 17, 2022, in the same area and captured by the same telescope. After many doubts, the event was resolved simply by checking the aerospace traffic of those days.
At that time it was discovered that SpaceX, Elon Musk’s aerospace company, had carried out a load of fuel on one of the Falcon 9s which operated within the NRO Launch 85 mission. The spiral was the effect produced by the droplets left by said fuel reflected by the sunlight, and which form a cloud in space due to the aerodynamic effect after the orbital of the Falcon 9, comments the Spanish medium.
Already having this background, the Japanese operators of the Subaru telescope explained or suspected the launch of a new Space X satellite hours before the phenomenon captured on April 18 as the cause of that spiral that was seen again in the Hawaiian sky.
