On July 7, something unusual
happened near the Xiaoshan Airport in Hangzhou, China.
An oddly shaped bright light appeared, forcing the airport to close
down and delay 18 flights.
Things are now back to normal, but people are wondering, what was that
An ABC News article on the sighting explains that some who witnessed
the light are calling it a UFO.
There is plenty of speculation on whether or not the object was some
sort of military aircraft or missile.
The ABC article explains that a day following the sighting, "an
anonymous source told China Daily that
authorities already discovered the identity of the UFO after an
investigation but could not publically
disclose the information because 'there was a military connection.'"
Authorities are continuing to look into the incident, but no public
conclusions have yet been made.
Despite, or perhaps because of the mystery, Web searches on "china ufo"
quickly soared 576%.
Related queries on "china ufo video 2010," "china ufo sightings," and
"hangzou china ufo" also
posted triple digit gains. Even now, a week after the sighting, online
lookups remain high.
Truth be told, there's not much left to be said. Something weird
happened. Nobody knows what it was.
And if they do, they aren't saying. Check out the video below and
judge for yourself.
That's not the usual shape we see in a UFO.
The entire underbelly seems to radiate light.

scientists 'filmed UFO for 40 minutes'
Scientists at the Purple
Mountain Observatory in Nanjing are reported to have confirmed
that they filmed a UFO during the eclipse for 40 minutes. They say that
they will spend
the next 12 months studying the footage before drawing any conclusions.
The director of the
observatory, Ji Hai-sheng, told
sina.com that scientists would not be
speculating publicly on the nature of what was captured on film until
it had been properly studied.
He added:"'Purple Mountain Observatory and Chinese Academy of Sciences
said that during
July 22 total solar eclipse observation, China had discovered
near the sun, by observing staff,
an unidentified object, it's physical nature remains to be further
"Currently manpower is being organized to deal with this data, complete
the data analysis
and reveal the scientific results and this will take at least one
year's time to finalise.
Interesting that they saw it during the eclipse, making
that without the eclipse it would have gone undetected.
