happened the past January 18 and has not stopped generating all kinds of speculations. It all happened when an observatory Hawaii caught a glowing spiral over the night sky. How did she originate?
He subaru Telescope, located at the highest point in Hawaii, the mauna kea volcano, caught the strange whirlpool. It was 4:45 in the morning. It began as a bright point and ended up expanding and turning on itself until it formed a spiral that was as beautiful as it was disturbing. In a few minutes, the whirlpool disappeared.
The most well-founded explanations of the phenomenon suggest that the mysterious spiral had its origin in a throwing of spacex, the aerospace company of Elon Musk. It was exactly what happened in April 2022, when an identical event occurred.
A spiral over the sky of Hawaii!

At the same moment that the spiral appeared Space X launched a satellite GPS to medium Earth orbit from Cape Canaveral in Florida. Everything points, therefore, to the fact that the fuel from the Falcon 9 rocket used for the launch is behind the appearance of the bright eddy.

The scant sunlight would have reflected off the drops emitted by the rocket at that height, causing the spinning glow.
