A video has been viewed thousands of times in Indian social media posts that claim it shows a string of bright lights moving uniformly through the night sky over the northern state of Uttar Pradesh in September 2022. While there were reports of people in the state seeing a similar phenomenon at the time, this video has been shared in a false context. It has circulated on YouTube since at least 2020. The user who filmed the original clip told AFP it shows Starlink satellites, which provide high-speed internet service, over central Europe in August 2020.
