China is not famous for UFO conspiracies not like in the USA where hit TV shows get inspiration from secret government cover-ups. However, when UFOs suddenly appear in the country as what took place on Friday night, a seemingly lack of information has made the existence of little green men the most suitable explanation.
Multiple residents allegedly saw the UFO on Friday night over Western Beijing and throughout the Celestial Kingdom’s northeastern parts.
Videos and photos show a bright funnel in cone shape leading an apparent cork-screw tail behind it. The light is seemingly shining downward, then changing course sharply, and then finally disappearing.
Even though the strange incident was widely seen, the information is so limited. No official reports that can shed the light of the phenomenon and the people were just left with a few facts.
Since it was seen throughout a wide area below, the object must be high up in the atmosphere, according to the editor-in-chief of the Guokr science website Yu Jun. With the object’s high altitude, it was illuminated by sunlight that reached beyond the shadow of the Earth.
Yu explained that the UFO could not be a satellite launch considering its acute change in trajectory and the Taiyuan rocket centre in Shanxi made no launches on the night of the sighting. Beidou satellite can be ruled out as well since they are only launched from the Xichang satellite launch centre in Western Sichuan province as per Beijing News.
Chinese state media has no official explanations about the strange incident, but the UFO is not likely to be there unless authorised considering the highly restricted China’s airspace.
It is not known what does the incident means, but people in China can relax if it turns out to be aliens conducting their probe tests. After all, UFOs are the least of worries among Beijingers when it comes to the list of airborne threats in the city that include killer bees, flying catkins, sandstorms, and air pollution.
