Multiple Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) sightings have recently been reported across different regions in China. They were spotted from June 30 to July 10 in the northwestern province of Xinjiang, the northeastern city of Changchun, the southeastern city of Hangzhou, and the southern city of Xiamen.

People have been perplexed by UFO sightings for many years. Governments tend to be non committal about their existence, one possibility might be that they fear a mass hysteria if announced that they are real. However, independent UFO researchers known as ufologists, are quick to say that “Yes, UFOs do exist.”

One recent sighting was in Urumqi, Xinjiang province, in northwestern China. At around 11:00 p.m. on June 30, a round, bright object was seen moving slowly eastward, leaving an enormous, fan-shaped trail of white light behind. A photo taken by a local resident was published in the July 5 issue of Xingjiang Metropolitan Daily.

According to Song Huagang, secretary-general of the Xinjiang Astronomical Society, the object was an intercontinental missile launched by the U.S. on June 30.

The "missile theory" was dismissed on July 9 by Wang Sichao, an astronomy researcher from the Zijinshan Astronomical Observatory (also known as Purple Mountain Observatory, under the aegis of the Chinese academy of Sciences.)

Wang told China News Service that it was not a U.S. missile, because Xinjiang and California are more than 7000 km (3450 miles) apart. On viewing the video footage Wang said that the UFO seems to be "somewhat strange," given its exceptionally bright midsection and its fascinating shape.

Hangzhou: Preferred Hangout

China News Service reported on July 8 that the Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport in the southeast province of Zhejiang was closed for one hour on July 7, at around 9:00 p.m. Due to a UFO sighting, flights were grounded. According to a witness who was in a plane that was landing, the object looked like a bright twinkling dot, coming and going in the blink of an eye.

Wang Sichao, from the Zhijinshan Astronomical Observatory dismissed the phenomenon, saying, “There is not enough information to draw a conclusion at this time.”
