It would seem that the United States is no longer the destination of choice for aliens and UFOs. Although many UFOs have been reported throughout the world over the decades since World War II, since last June there have been quite a few documented UFO sightings in different parts of China, raising many eyebrows among both believers and non-believers.

Although 95% of UFO sightings have scientific explanations, it is that other 5% that is enough to send shivers up even the most scientific of spines.

The most recent sighting occurred on September 11, at Batou Airport in Inner Mongolia, causing the airport to shut down for about an hour. In the interim, three flights from Shanghai and Beijing had to circle the airport until the “shining bright light in the sky” suddenly disappeared. Witnesses reported seeing the strange lights from as far as two-and-a half miles away.

On September 6th in Haining City, Zhejiang Province, television reporters captured a distant UFO on camera for more than 40 minutes. Described as a low flying craft that was “much larger and brighter than the stars around it,” the object reportedly changed from being round to rectangular with shiny blue lights and other flickering objects around it.

In July of this year, there were several sightings as well. On July 7, Xiaoshan International Airport in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province near Shanghai, postponed more than 20 flights because of a “glowing streak in the sky.” This particular sighting is the only one of this odd cluster that was later confirmed to have been a part of a military test.

On July 15th, about 8 pm, another UFO sighting occurred in Chongqing, a city in southwestern China. This time there were “four lantern-like objects forming a diamond shape,” that “hovered over Shaping Park for over an hour.”

“I stared at it and it did not move. After hovering for an hour, the thing started to fly higher and finally out of people’s sight,” said one witness, Mr. Chen.

No official explanation has been given for this sighting.

Are China’s UFOs private airplanes flying without flight plans?

Can that explain the recent spate of unexplained celestial phenomena?

Who on earth can say?

Who on earth indeed.
