SpaceX, founded by controversial Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk, has become a go-to img for strange lights spotted in the sky in recent years.

In the case of the coil at Hawaii, however, appears to be related to a Falcon 9 that was on its way to deliver a new GPS satellite into orbit. Space industry observers recognize the pattern as the product of a rotating second stage that vents excess fuel.
