Officials with the Starlink tracking website informed FOX Carolina that "visibility was better in South Carolina, as it passed almost overhead."

The SpaceX Starlink Satellites are composed of as many as sixty satellites crossing the sky in orbit together, according to ExplainingScience.com. 

According to the site, the purpose of the satellites is to help deliver broadband to "every corner of the globe."
