BOCA CHICA BEACH, Texas (KGBT) — Cameron County Judge Eddie Treviño has announced temporary road closures for SpaceX testing.
According to a release, Treviño has ordered the closure of access to Boca Chica Beach, as well as State Highway 4 from FM 1419 (Oklahoma Ave.) to the entrance of Boca Chica Beach.
“I have ordered the closure of Highway 4 and Boca Chica Beach for the purpose of protecting public health and safety during SpaceX testing activities on November 12 between 12:00 p.m. Central Standard Time and 8:00 p.m. of the same day and in the alternative on November 13, 2019 between 12:00 p.m. Central Standard Time and 8:00 p.m. and/or November 14, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. Central Standard Time and 8:00 p.m. of the same day, in the event the November 12, 2019, temporary closure is not utilized. Should SpaceX not complete its test launch activities on November 12, 2019, then SpaceX may use the alternate date to complete its test launch activities,” said Treviño in a press release.
We’re told that SpaceX and local law enforcement will be coordinating to ensure that no individuals or vehicles are allowed access to these areas during the times of day that are listed.
Individuals who provide proof of residence between the two checkpoints set up on Highway 4 by SpaceX will be allowed to proceed through the soft checkpoint and access their homes during testing.
SpaceX Is About To Double Its Internet Satellites In Orbit, Eyes Critical Mass
A SpaceX launch to deploy the next batch of Starlink internet satellites is scheduled for Monday morning, ahead of a surge next year that could enable some operational capability.
The launch is scheduled for no earlier than 9:51 a.m. ET from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Fla.
A SpaceX launch in May deployed an initial set of 60 prototype satellites. Since then, the company has said five will come out of orbit, including three due to malfunctions and two for deorbiting tests.
After Monday’s SpaceX launch, the pace of Starlink deployments is expected to pick up sharply. In September, COO Gwynne Shotwell said she hopes to see 24 Starlink missions in 2020 alone.

Last month, she said SpaceX could start offering broadband service in the U.S. by in mid-2020, after completing six to eight Starlink launches, presumably carrying about 60 satellites each. But the company has to finish the ground-based user terminals for that to work, she noted.
SpaceX has said it needs 400 Starlink satellites for “minor” broadband internet coverage and 800 for “moderate” coverage. Based on recent International Telecommunication Union filings the company eventually plans to deploy over 40,000 satellites to offer space-based internet service.
Strange ‘rotating disc’ caught on video by driver stuck in NC traffic. Is it a UFO?
Eleven UFO sightings were logged by experts last month in North Carolina, but it’s an even dozen if you include a lesser known report made near Shelby, about 50 miles west of Charlotte.
That potential sighting came to light after a video appeared on YouTube, showing a disc-like object that remained stationary over Cleveland County for several minutes before vanishing, according to a witness.
The video was recorded in morning rush hour on Oct. 25 and posted with a request that viewers give ideas on what it might have been, including the possibility it was just a reflection or strange play of light.
Aaron Bostic, 33, told McClatchy news group that he was stuck in traffic on U.S. 74 in Shelby when he spotted the “diamond shaped object glowing really brightly” against a cloudy sky. It appeared to be rotating, he said.
“It really stuck out like a sore thumb and I kept thinking that maybe it was a plane landing at Charlotte Douglas (International) Airport or maybe it was a really big stunt drone, but it stayed in the same spot for two minutes,” he told McClatchy.
“Honestly, I don’t know what it was and nobody at work who has seen the video knows what it was,” he added. “I’m not a believer in that kind of stuff, but we’ve had all this come out about UFOs and the military. You sort of have to question what you believe.”
Possible explanations posted by viewers on YouTube have included a weather balloon or ball lightning, which National Geographic describes as “glowing, electric orbs” that appear as floating spheres during thunderstorms.
“Can’t really tell if its a Goodyear type blimp or one of those silvery cigar-shaped UFOs,” Molly Lenore posted on YouTube.
Bostic says he considered that it was a helicopter but saw no flashing lights, and says it didn’t have the right contours to be a blimp.
In September, a video of strange lights seen off North Carolina’s Outer Banks got international attention — and denials from the military that the lights were linked to training or other operations.
William Guy posted a 31-second video Sept. 28 on YouTube, showing what appears to be 14 glowing orbs over the water. He refers to it as a “real UFO sighting.”
