China UFO Witnessed by Hundreds, Photographed, Passenger Flights Diverted

Friday, July 16, 2010

A UFO was seen by hundreds of people in the skies over Hangzhou, China.

Xiaoshan Airport was closed after the UFO was detected at around 9PM, as flights were rerouted to airports in the cities of Ningbo and Wuxi , according to an airport spokesman.

What’s interesting to me is, neither the Chinese or U.S. governments can deny this event because several pictures of the object went viral late Wednesday and early Thursday and Chinese airport officials confirmed the presence of an unidentified flying object in the skies above Hangzhou.

A Chinese government source did tell China Daily on Thursday that authorities had learned what the UFO was after an investigation but, declined to issue specifics.

    China has always been more forthcoming about their UFO reporting and analysis. Unlike the U.S., every UFO reported in China isn’t relegated to a “weather balloon” or a meteor.

  2. Eric Equality Kuntz says:

    I have never seen a UFO but I think they exist.

    Just think about it: when millions of people on every continent report seeing something inexplicable, who am I to deny their experiences?

  3. R.J. says:

    I read something about this before I went to bed last night and it said something about it being a “military” issue. Must be a Chinese “weather balloon”.

    I wish they would take Glenn Beck back…

    Dick Cheney just had heart surgery. Maybe the aliens are here to take him home? Hurry! I’ll help him pack and aliens, while you’re here, please Sarah Palin and Pope Benedict XVI. They’re not needed.

    I saw a UFO. I was on a flight from LA to Puerto Vallarta. An evening flight. Everyone on the flight saw it too.

    Even the pilot came on the PA system and made a joke about it so the flight crew saw it too.

    The strange thing is, I was nervous and non of the passengers seemed nervous either.

    Time to call in X files FBI Special Agents Scully & Mulder.

    Also Memo to Aliens: Seriously– you don’t want to get involved with this planet….. move on!

    Never saw a UFO myself but, my parents swear up and down they saw something they say was a UFO when went to Australia about 15 years ago and they visited Ayers Rock.

    All the tourists in their tour group saw it too.

    The numerical probability of life, intelligent or not, is quite good, when you stop to consider our galaxy contains billions of stars with many more billions of planets orbiting the stars.

    I have always found it odd when I hear someone say with certainty that life on earth is it — there is not a snowball’s chance in hell of life existing elsewhere.

    This point of view seems to suggest the idea of life beyond earth as something we should fear or feel threatened by. I just don’t see the universe this way.

  10. Francois Moller says:

    First of all I do believe alien intelligent life, capable of advance space travel, do exits somewhere in the vastness of space; however UFOs are mass hysterical illusions and total crap. I we are visited so often, like all the thousands of sightings per annum that we get on this planet then surely lots of people must have met some of their occupants by now and the world introduced to these alien race(s) FOR SURE. Why travel several light years and visit our planet, on a thousands occasions, and not curious to meet our race and definitely make contact with us regards of how primitive we are. It seem like a pointless and stupid en devour, a waste of resources and time by this race!

    It like astrology, terror cards, birth signs and the like all mass bullshit and has no logical basis to exist.

    For example to travel to nearest big galaxy (M32 or Andromeda) will take you two million years, that is IF you mastered to travel at the speed of light. The nearest star, Proxima Centauri will take you 4.3 years to travel to, IF you master the speed pf light (299,792,458 meters per second). With known space craft speeds it will take you 30 000 years. So a there and back is 60 000 years. And this is ONLY the closest start. To M31 it will take you 13 953 488 372 years ONE WAY ONLY, if my Microsoft Windows Calculator is working as it should be.

    So, regular deep space travel and regular sightings are basically impossible in our short lives on this insignificant speck of dust, called Earth, in a very miniscule solar system.

    It is al just nonsense and make belief, like fights of fantasy.

  11. bradfrmphnx says:

    Francois…you make a decent argument, but you are thinking with a human brain. It is entirely possible that some or all of these UFOs could be unmanned spacecraft due to the rigors of flying faster than the speed of light. If life can travel in space fast enough to travel here and visit us, if they have that kind of technology, then I doubt that we would have the capacity to understand the question “why” would they want to come here and meet us. I don’t think we can answer the why, but we might be able to answer the if. That is if they ever decide to stay for a meet and greet. I think that we have been visited, are being visited, and will continue to be visited. By what, who knows.

  12. VicoDANIEL says:

    The three closest stars to us are commonly called Alpha Centauri. The two larger stars, said to be Sun-like, are named Alpha Centauri A and B.

    These stars are 4.36 light-years away from Earth, meaning light requires 4.36 years to travel from them Earth.

    Assuming for this discussion intelligent life exists on one or more of the planets orbiting the one or more of the larger stars, and they are an inter-stellar species who achieved half of light speed, it would take them 8.72 of our years to reach Earth. Slightly less because time slows the closer to light speed an object moves. So maybe 8.5 years.

    This is not an impossible length of time to spend in space if you are accustomed to space travel. While I wouldn’t do it, everyone isn’t like me, so I can’t assume.

    Now, if the inhabitants of Alpha Centauri A and B have developed velocity warping space, even by a factor of 1.5, traveling from Alpha Centauri A and B
    to Earth would take a manageable 1.2 years.

    Space is vast. I’ve always thought it was bizarre that we still use rocket technology developed in the 1940’s to transport men and women into space. A 20 story canister filled with gasoline, a tiny pod the size of a mini-van containing 6 astronauts and light the fuse. We need to develop new propulsion for deep space exploration or why bother?

  14. Harry says:

    Too much math on these replies. My eyes glaze over when I try to understand light speed.

  15. Randy Arroyo says:

    You know, the Chinese have a long, and candid history with UFO sightings. I remember back in high school, I read a book about UFO sightings and China was mentioned a lot. Even the Chinese government is candid about the phenomenon. They embrace the fact we co-exist with something out of the ordinary and they don’t seem threatened.

  16. Joe in Colorado says:

    The picture on the left is curious. It looks like a plane but the lights are wrong for an aircraft. Now, the picture on the right reminds me of a spotlight. We don’t see them much anymore but it could be shown from the ground up. But the local airport diverted flights, so this means they weren’t sure either.

  17. Jolly Roger says:

    Looks like the Heaven’s Gate crew came back for stragglers.

  18. Tim Waters says:

    Yeah I saw one, broad day light. A bunch of us kids just got to my house and we were hanging out throwing a baseball around. This thing streaked across the sky at what seemed super speed. It stopped and hovered fro a few minutes. No sound was heard by us. Then poof,move a little and disappeared.
    We weren’t alone in seeing it, the thing was reported about in the local paper. I’d love to know what it was.
    I do know it wasn’t a damn balloon.
    The End

  19. Jimmy says:

    I don’t think it’s about traveling at the speed of light, but instead, it’s about bending space. Something like the way space travel is portrayed in Frank Herbert’s “Dune”, or wormholes, is, if I’m not mistaken, acceptable to Einstein’s theories

  20. John says:

    I saw one back in 1983 –

    It was of the cigar type. They call them rods now. Anyway it went from one horizon to the other in about 3 seconds, my friend pointed it out to me. It made zero sound and had no wings. I will never forget it.

    I have not seen one since. But after seeing that in 1983 I became a believer.

    Just recently on Fox News in NY five US Air Force officers with Nuclear clearance have come forward to reveal what they saw back in 1967 while on duty at the ballistic missile silos.

    You have to wonder, when five officers come forward and hold a news conference
    on a major news station regarding the UFO that literally shut down the missile silo
    that was witnessed by the Air Force officers on the base; what more credibility do you require?

    As the Air Force Officer stated “They are here, and we are being watched.”

    For me anyone who states “They don’t exist.” is now the crazy person.
