What was seen up in the night sky zipping and hovering over an Upstate New York neighborhood? One resident in the area took to the Nextdoor App to ask others their opinion. You be the judge.

On Wednesday night, June 12th, "Jake" witnessed a phenomenon in the night sky in a neighborhood in Saratoga County and the City of Mechanicville. I live in this neighborhood and although I didn't see them, I am pretty convinced that they were UFOs.

Others commented that the objects were Starlink. According to Google, Starlink is:

...a satellite internet network developed by SpaceX, an American aerospace company, to provide high-speed broadband internet to remote locations and other areas. Starlink's constellation of thousands of satellites orbits the Earth at a low altitude of about 550 kilometers, allowing for lower latency and faster speeds.

Others disputed that theory saying that they were moving very fast.
