Chinese airport shut down after UFO flies overhead

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 10 Jul 2010 14:04 User comments (49)

Chinese airport shut down after UFO flies overhead China shut down the Xiaoshan Airport early this morning after a UFO flew through the night sky, leaving a bright trail of light in its wake.
Over 30 flights had to be redirected or cancelled.

The UFO was first seen flying over the Zhejiang provincial capital Hangzhou.

Witnesses called local authorities claiming they had seen a "comet-like" fireball in the sky.

Says one witness: "The thing suddenly ran westwards fast, like it was escaping from something."

Some experts have already said the sight was debris from U.S. intercontinental ballistic missile, and Chinese officials have stayed mum, given the "military" connection.

Norway sighting was also deemed a missle . Thats always the excuse they give to try and cover up the truth . How can we be the only intelligent life form in the entire galaxy .

My thoughts exactly. Last time I checked, flames don't exert from the FRONT of the nosel, esspecially if it's moving in the same direction. They even said it was debris, not the missile itself. Lol, never seen debris move like is was a jet before. I'm tired of these so called idiotic "experts". What the hell gives them the right to keep these secrets from the world. Someone needs to kick some asses in Area 51.

Along time ago in a place far far away. Sorry had to do some sort of Star Wars reference. I kinda think the first one does look a bit like a missile coming apart but hell I'm no expert.

910.7.2010 19:34

bam431, i agree as it appears to be space debris as it reminds me of the columbia accident that killed 7 crewmen. the 2nd picture reminds me of a comet because of the wide tail & appears to be above the clouds because a cloud appears to be between the tail & ground.

Just to let ya know.. debris from space is never falling straight down.. that would mean it is straight up from you. its moving out in space so when it hits gravity its still moving in that same direction. thats the reason from the angle of approch when the space shuttle comes in.. or like they say you would never even come close to the ground since your comming in to fast you would keep going right back out into space..

UFOs and the general Chinese population DO NOT mix, and there shall be no inter-breeding of such life forms, would put a serious dent in the Darwin Awards! If the aliens (haha) are this clumsy and get caught, they don't need to screw things up even more worse than what they are now. Pack up and go home!!


2212.7.2010 2:27

Just to let everyone know, unless you study this stuff and have credentials to back it up, the object remains an unidentified flying object.

2312.7.2010 3:42

it looks like a Jet engine blow out. but its to hard to tell because the only related Photo is blurred by a Cheap Chinese Camera.

Ive seen some very weird shit in my day, so this isn't WOW material.

Ive seen a Ball of light yellowish/green, that would appear to move abnormally fast at just 3 feet off the ground. weird but kinda cool.

Had a old B&W TV in a cabinet that would turn itself on & off out of no where,even unplugged. Massive amounts of electricity build up explain that on though. a Giant tree never attacked me tough so i assume Poltergeist wasn't to blame :).

2412.7.2010 10:28

Nah it's Kim's Disco machine coming to visit all the way from North Korea...Sure he was too high and off course but that's good ol North Side Kim!


2512.7.2010 12:12

I dont get it, do people not understand the words "falling" and "crossing" ?

2612.7.2010 14:55

Earth rotational speed CCW = 1040mph. ICBM flying at Mach 4 CW = 2,640mph .
An ICBM flying at 2,640 CW mph breaking into the Earths outer atmosphere at an opposing 1,040 CCW mph will effectively be traveling 3,680 mph. Perfectly represented in the top picture.
Objects from outer space do not fall straight down.

An ICBM would start breaking apart when it hit our outer atmosphere which is around 328,083 feet up. The pull of gravity is 33 (feet per-second-per-second). Someone else can do the math on how long it would take for it to hit the ground.

Though I disagree with the space debris part.............I gotta say, your comment about intelligent life and the octopus was the funniest sh*t I've read in a long time. Good laugh.

Maybe someone was trying to take something outta the country and the commies didn't want that to happen so they scrambled fighters and shot down a aircraft then used Aliens as a cover for a flaming plane and a closed airport. Likely not but just putting it out there.

"And here's hoping that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
Coz there's bugger-all down here on Earth!"

Well, all of you extra bright scientists out there, just say it is beautiful and it is a mystery? Wish we could figure out what it was, where it came from and identify it for sure. This isn't anything to argue about, it is just beautiful and mysterious. That's it! K, homes?

I blew up the top photo. It looks like a smeared picture of a landing Lear Jet to me. I can even see the jetstream, & the reflection of the verticle stabalizer. The smeared bright light underneath is most likely the after effect of moving the camera, which it visible by the double exposed towers. The light itself are the landing lights, every plane has them!

Falling space debris doesn't change direction. There's no way that we can tell just by that video. I happen to believe in in that ET is out there, but that doesn't automatically mean I believe this video is of aliens. Chances are it's some Chinese military exercise. I doubt any other country would be there. If it is alien, then why not? Anybody that truely believes alien life doesn't exist doesn't realize just how emmense our galaxy is let alone the entire universe. Why would they be here? Why do we go to the north pole to study worms that live in ice? Why do we strive on cataloging every species we find on earth? Science. Knowledge. Understanding. Any advanced culture would be the same way, and if they can make it here then then they are much, much more advanced that the clever monkeys we call humans.

Well some scientists think the odds of that new planet they found, the one in the "goldy-locks" zone, having life on it is close to 100 percent.

It's called Gliese 581G and it's about 20 lightyears away.

So you'd have to be naieve to think that, if we've already found one there aren't more and that one of them wouldn't have someone else intelligent on it.

437.10.2010 8:55

Thinking we were the only life in all this would be far more scary than the fact that there are many more life forms who have been around alot longer than us

447.10.2010 11:54

There'll be life on other planets for sure... and they'll be dinosaurs! :P




Some people forget how long evolution takes. Simple timing unfortunately narrows the odds for intelligent life down a fair bit. Heck, multicellular lifeforms have only been around about 400-500 million of the 4 1/2 billion years of life on this planet. Most of the story is about bacteria! :)
