Mysterious Green Lasers Seen Over Hawaii Likely From Chinese Satellite
A wall of mysterious green lasers spotted over Hawaii last month is now believed to have come from a Chinese satellite. Video of the event was first posted online by the National Astronomic Observatory of Japan (NAOJ), appearing like something out of The Matrix. The lasers were initially believed to be the result of a NASA instrument, but new evidence suggests that they are likely Chinese.

The phenomenon was first observed on January 28 by a NAOJ camera atop Mauna Kea, Hawaii’s tallest mountain. The lights were believed to have originated from NASA’s ICESat-2 satellite, which uses an advanced topographic laser to map and measure the earth’s surface.
On Jan 28, 2023, HST, Subaru-Asahi Star Camera captured green laser lights in the cloudy sky over Maunakea, Hawai`i. The lights are thought to be from a remote-sensing altimeter satellite ICESAT-2/43613.

The NAOJ issued a startling correction to its video on February 6,
“According to Dr. Martino, Anthony J., a NASA scientist working on ICESat-2 ATLAS, it is not by their instrument but by others,” the NAOJ’s update stated. “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. We really appreciate their efforts in the identification of the light. We are sorry about our confusion related to this event and its potential impact on the ICESat-2 team.”
The green laser lights were spotted the same day a Chinese spy balloon was detected off the coast of Alaska. The Chinese maintain that their balloon was a civilian research aircraft blown off course, but White House officials now claim that the craft intercepted American ground communications.

Vice News reported that the Chinese satellite over Hawaii, the Daqi-1, serves a similar purpose to NASA’s ICESat-2, which is “to monitor atmospheric pollution using lasers.” However, the recent violation of U.S. sovereignty by Chinese spycraft has not left many Americans convinced of the satellite’s harmlessness.
“China is shining green lasers down to Earth from space from their satellites… This doesn’t seem good,” comedy duo The Hodgetwins tweeted.

Brian Lupo of the Gateway Pundit tweeted, “Now we have green Matrix-looking space lasers over Hawaii. F-ck it. I’m done.”

Much like the nation’s borders on the ground, U.S. airspace seems to increasingly be a matter of open invitation. The revelation that the Pentagon has allowed Chinese spy craft to violate American sovereignty on more than one occasion has shaken confidence in the government’s ability to keep its citizens safe. The White House’s willingness to shoot down an unidentified aircraft over Alaska on Friday was a surprise to many since the last aircraft to violate Alaskan airspace was then allowed to journey over the length of the United States.

The shootdown of the Chinese balloon near South Carolina, the shootdown of the unidentified flying object over Alaska, and the revelation of the Hawaiian lasers’ likely Chinese origin all occurred within one week prior to this article’s publication.
