On January 28, 2023 it was cloudy on Mauna Kea, but The Subaru Telescope on Mauna Kea, Hawaii captured video of a strange sky phenomenon with its livestreaming Subaru-Asahi Star Camera. Although it was only a second or less they managed to capture mysterious green laser lights, coming from the sky!

The mysterious beams of light raised many questions from the viewers who suggested it was a UFO that fired the beams or it was related to the mysterious project Blue Beam.
On February 6, 2023 Dr. Martino, Anthony J., a NASA scientist working on ICESat-2 ATLAS, said that that the beams did not come from one of their instrument but by others. His colleagues, Dr. Alvaro Ivanoff et al., did a simulation of the trajectory of satellites that have a similar instrument and found a most likely candidate as the ACDL instrument by the Chinese Daqi-1/AEMS satellite.
While it is important to note that these types of sightings are not uncommon and are often caused by the reflection of sunlight off of satellites or other objects in space and despite the statement by Dr. Martino and Dr. Ivanoff that the Chinese Daqi-1/AEMS satellite is the most likely candidate based on simulations and available evidence, it’s always possible that additional information could change the understanding of what ‘really’ caused the strange sighting.
