HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The moon was big and bright Tuesday night as many across the islands looked up to enjoy the night sky.

While doing so, some people saw strange lights.

Viewers started contacting Hawaii News Now asking about what they’d seen.

Jon Savage, who sent us a photo of the near-perfectly aligned lights, said he saw them around 7:05 p.m. from his Oahu home.

“My wife and I were sitting in our yard stargazing when a line of bright lights came streaming across the night sky over Diamond Head in the direction of Molokai,” he wrote in an email.

He noted about 20 to 25 lights, “that resembled a Roman candle shot across the sky,” he said.

At least one viewer on Maui also reported seeing them.

Right now, we don’t know exactly what they are. The National Weather Service said nothing out of the ordinary appeared on their radar.

We’ve also contacted the Federal Aviation Administration and are awaiting a response.

Others have speculated the lights were 5G drones, or satellites similar to SpaceX’s Starlink Satellites.

Whatever the speculation may be, so far, there’s been no official confirmation.
