Out There stories relating to "China UFO"

Unmentioned in the description of this object are two bright orbs moving toward it while blinking on and off in the first few seconds of the video. The object itself is not a sundog and it doesn't look like a CGI job. Possible unknown.

On June 4th, Air China flight CA4307 had a mid-air collision with a foreign object that left a significant dent in the plane's nose. After the pilots reported performance problems, the plane returned to Guangzhou, where the flight had originated. The damage shown indicates a glancing blow with a lightweight object, and Chinese authorities identified it as a probable bird strike. However, there is no known bird that can fly at 26,000 feet. The highest flying species is the Bar-headed goose, which can cross the Himalayas at an average altitude of 18,000 feet. They have been observed as high as 21,000 feet when over the Himalayas, but not over China. They fly at much lower altitudes over the lowlands, and Guangzhou is in the plain of central China north of Hong Kong and over a thousand miles from Tibet. The region is not on the typical migration pattern of the Bar-headed goose.

Well, folks, your cynical old Out There editor is unable to resist posting this video even though I would be pretty amazed if it was the real thing. If it is a hoax, it is well done. It would take a lot of animation skill and patience to make the UFO race along behind the trees so flawlessly. But there are skilled and patient animators in China, no question about that, and the low resolution of the footage makes rough edges easy to conceal. Anyway, feast your eyes and imagination. Maybe someday it really will happen like this, and if this is real, then--wow!

Interesting video shot on low-light camera.

This could easily be a photo of a meteor or a star, but witness testimony suggests otherwise.

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

This photo is not a lens effect, and as this is a multiple witness case, what is on the image was probably in the sky. But what is it? It appears to be a cloud, so is it some sort of bizarre natural phenomenon? With so many weather anomalies these days, that seems possible. But could it also be something concealing itself in a self-generated cloud? Unless this is a very elaborate hoax, which in this day and time is always possible, it's a genuine unknown.

The announcer describes an unknown object that appeared near China's Shenzhou 9 rocket as it ascended with three astronauts aboard. The object is unknown.

According to this story, more than a thousand people watched this object over a period of hours. It was at times accompanied by other objects. So it wasn't a meteor, not with a duration that long. The object would appear to be an unknown.

The announcer in this broacast is explaining that the airport was closed down for thirty minutes while an unitentified object remained in the area of the field. Similar incidents took place in China and Norway in 2011.

This is probably not a balloon, but what else could it be? Perhaps a Chinese inventor with a spectacular new personal flight system...or something very much stranger?

Of course, these would be easy to create in the comuter, but it seems less likely that a hoaxer would go to such pains to make them appear to be blurred like this--or, for that matter, why they are blurred, given that the other objects in the frame are not. Distortion like this has been observed in other UFO photos.

There are two unusual objects in this video. The most obvious is an orange blinking light that becomes a dark object as it appears to draw closer to the camera. The second appears like a moving star in the upper part of the frame.

Is this a balloon, a CGI effect, or something truly mysterious? Our experts have weighed in on this, and this comment sums up the opinion of those who have sent us replies:

"They all have in common the fact that:
"1) no cross-confirming videos ever appeared, despite the humongously spectacular appearance of these alleged objects.
"2) they could all have been easily produced via CGI.
"3) none of them had audio tracks that convincingly (or at all) included expressions of amazement.
"This one is no exception to the above patterns, but it has two additional telltale features:
"- The UFO is sharper (less blurry) than the powerplant that's allegedly at the same distance from the camera.
"- When the smaller pyramid passes into the shadow of the larger one, the shadow appears for a much shorter time than it should, given the width of the larger pyramid. The strange thing about this is that CGI software should not have made this kind of light-modeling error. I infer, therefore, that the two objects were created separately, then composited, then tracked to the random motions of the handheld camera."

So the question is, who would be bothering to create these, and why? The answer lies in advertising. People click on them. Advertisers pay. It mounts up.

The UFO phenomenon is a very real mystery, and using it in this way is immoral--but these days, who cares, right? Morality-schmorality! (Well, your Out There editor cares. A lot. We will keep looking for those real videos that are out there, and making what noise we can about the fakes.)

This could be a bird or some other known object, but it seems too large and too fast. (The object appears in the clip of the train station at the end of the video.)

There are more and more UFO videos from China. This one does not show any signs of alteration or desktop creation, but it isn't clear enough to be described as a definitive UFO.

Another 'outlier' anomaly like the mysterious sounds being reported all over the world at present. This glow persisted for twenty minutes on the horizon in Beijing two night ago. Question is, what was it? The hypothesis repeated in the broadcast video here that it might have had something to do with a Russian satellite is hard to accept. A satellite's launch or passage would surely not have created something that appears as this does.

So much for the various official explanations of the recent Chinese UFOs. 'Colossal' is quite a word for a professional observer like an airline pilot to use.

This seems to happen on a regular basis. Officials said it could have been a floating lantern or a balloon. Officially.

This is may be a kite or some sort of advanced aircraft, perhaps an experimental Chinese jet. If it's a spy plane from another country, it's taking quite a chance to appear so openly over Chinese territory.

In January of 2010, an object appeared over Newfoundland that appeared to be a rocket or missile. It was investigated by Canadian authorities and declared an unknown. This object videotaped yesterday in China seems strikingly similar. To see our story about the Newfoundland rocket, click here.

This could well be a CGI effect, but there is also a blurry object overtaking a black car on the road in the bottom of the frame that probably isn't, so we are including this on the off chance that there might be somethng to it.

This could easily be a CGI effect, but there is not enough data in the image to be certain. Telltale: why is the camera searching for the UFO before it appears? Was it because the videographer had seen the UFO, then rushed to the window with the camera, or was it for effect? Graded C.

This is not a computer graphic, it is not a plane or a group of small planes, and it is not a constellation or other stars would be visible. A genuine unknown. Graded B.

There is no reason to believe that this video is fake, but it is strange that the person making it thought so little fo the incredible UFO outside the plane that he simply panned away from it. For this reason, graded C.

The blizzard of conflicting explanations from China regarding the UFOs that shut down airports there last summer continues. At this point, who knows what happened?
