Remember that secretive missile test that China had last week? Well, it didn’t just catch the world by surprise: a lot of people in and around northwest China were pretty spooked by the sudden, unexplained explosion. Naturally, people notice when things in the air blow up: luckily for China’s military, though, it seems like a lot of them just thought it was a UFO.
As the “sightings” are concentrated around the Xinjiang/Gansu/Inner Mongolia reigon, it’s pretty safe to say that the recent military experiment is the cause, though it’s always possible that it was an extraterrestrial dogfight. It seems like a lot of people noticed, too: the missile test even had workers at the Jiuquan space center spooked into thinking that extraterrestrials had visited earth.
A worker at the Jiuquan space center in Gansu province provided a detailed report about a “white circular structure about the size of dozens of moons.” The worker said the display “quickly expanded to half of the sky, and then gradually faded.”
After wondering whether the flash was a nuclear explosion, the worker said “my colleagues and I then guessed that it may be an alien voyager from another planet.” The display lasted just two or three minutes, the worker said.
We know that China’s got a healthy UFO obsession, but you would think the people at the space center would be more in touch with what’s going on in the atmosphere, or at least understand the relative size between a missile test and dozens of moons. Still, we find it bizarre that no one thinks the Chinese government was actually working with the extraterrestrials on the launch: what better way to intimidate the United States after they sold Taiwan arms than to team up with aliens? Hasn’t anyone seen Independence Day?
