reportedly spied on by an unidentified flying object.
A few days ago (20 August), a giant
illuminating glob was witnessed by a dozen Chinese
pilots in the sky 17,000m above city of Shanghai.
The brilliant circle, which is hundreds
times brighter than the moon with a diameter reaching
50 nautical miles, appeared in the heaven at 9pm
and stayed there for about 20 minutes before slowly
faded into the night scene.
Chinese astronomer Wang Sichao (王思潮)
from Zijinshan Observatory in Nanjing said when interviewed
by media that he doesn't believe it could be a man-made
The mysterious circle was also observed
by people in Beijing and the photo was taken from
Yanshan observatory in the outskirts of Beijing.
