Two luminous objects appeared in the skies over northwestern Taiyuan in China’s Shanxi Province at about 8:40 p.m. on Oct. 11 and kept circling in the air.
Many residents considered them to be UFOs and dialed hotlines of media agencies. It was not long ago that a UFO appeared in the ancient town of Pingyao, Shanxi Province.
At 8:42 p.m., Taiyuan resident Mr. Qiao was the first to dial the hotline to report the two bright objects near Taiyuan’s Xincheng Dapo area, one small and one large. He said, “They keep circling regularly. At first, I considered them to be light sources such as a searchlight. However, I then found there were no light beams beneath the objects. It was so strange.” Almost at the same time, resident Mr. Zhang said through the hotline that there were unidentified illuminant objects circling in the air near Taiyuan’s Sanqianglu area.
Having heard the news, reporters immediately went to the sites and continued to receive UFO-related reports on the way. Local residents saw two luminous objects circling in the air at 8:55 p.m. near Xinhuajie area, at 9:01 p.m. near the Apparel Town area, and at 9:05 p.m. near the racetrack area.
After reporters arrived at the plaza of the Taiyuan Railway Station, they found there was indeed a big milky-white luminous spot circling above the clouds with a diameter of at least 10 meters. The object first looked like a luminous spot produced by a searchlight above the clouds, but it had no obvious light beams. The illuminated object kept circling and moved upwards and downwards and from side to side until it disappeared around 9:10 p.m.
On the afternoon of Oct. 11, a reporter conducted a telephone interview with the Shanxi UFO Research Society President Liu Fengjun and chief consultant Yang Guangliang.
Reporter: Is the frequency relatively high for the appearance of UFOs in Shanxi?
Expert: Some of the objects reported by the public are not UFOs but artificially released flying objects such as sky lanterns and luminous kites. Some others are space debris, high-altitude aircraft and optical phenomena.
Reporter: Were the appearance of UFOs associated with weather?
Expert: It is unrelated. There is no regularity for the appearance of UFOs that may appear over remote or urban areas during the daytime or night on sunny or rainy days.

UFO Sightings On the Rise in China Amid More Details in Previous Sightings

UFO sightings China
Reports last week showed the large number of reported UFO sightings in China in the past months. Ever since the initial reports came out more and more “evidence” has been coming out in China. The story was initially released by a number of notorious tabloid news papers; though the facts quickly started to pile up to confirm the situation.
Since last week when the story came out the Chinese UFO sightings have become a sort of internet phenomenon. Late this week a video was uploaded by one of the men who witnessed one of the many UFOs over China. The video does not show very much; largely due to darkness and a lack of clarity. Despite that the video has received nearly a quarter million views in just over 2 days. Clearly despite widespread skepticism there is still a belief in UFO’s around the world.
The video released was not the only new information in the UFO sightings. Dozens more people have come forward claiming to have seen UFOs in and around the area in the past month. In most cases the witnesses reported being afraid to report them because of public perception. Largely the date and times of the newly reported sightings line up well with other reported incidents; giving the witnesses at least some layer of credibility.
This apparent outbreak in UFO sightings comes amidst political discussion regarding what to do in case of an alien encounter. The U.N. and other worldwide organizations are reportedly working on a possible plan of what to do should alien contact be initiated. At this point however it is all speculation with almost no factual evidence to support either side of the debate. Many critics claim that the large number of UFO sightings in China is largely due to a ripple effect. People are now on the lookout for UFOs and as such are much more likely to report mysterious sightings as such.

Fresh Report of UFO Over China Marks 8th Time Since June
Flashing Lights in the Sky Prompt Shut Down of Airport in Inner Mongolia
By MARY HUANG
Oct. 6, 2010
A Chinese airport was shut down for more than an hour last month because air traffic controllers saw what they believed to be a UFO buzzing the airport, according to reports out of the country.
It is the eighth time since June that UFOs have been reported in China.
In the latest episode, several passenger jets were diverted from the airport at Baotou in Inner Mongolia for about an hour arond 8 p.m. on Sept. 11.
The alert was triggered by bright lights in the sky that moved erratically, but reports claim that air traffic controllers at the Hohhot Air Traffic Management Bureau spotted the object on their radar.
After about an hour, the object and the lights suddenly vanished and passenger jets were allowed to land.
The Chinese government had said on previous occasions that the lights claimed to be UFOs were military exercises, but the government denied the Sept. 11 incident happened at all.
This summer another UFO report caused a sensation and forced Xiaoshan Airport in Hangzhou, to cease operations on July 7.
A flight crew preparing for descent first detected the object around 8:40 p.m. and notified the air traffic control department. Aviation authorities responded within minutes, grounding outbound flights and diverting inbound ones to airports in Ningbo and Wuxi.
Eighteen flights were affected. Though normal operations resumed an hour later, the incident captured the attention of the Chinese media and sparked a firestorm of speculation on the UFO’s identity.
Hangzhou residents released photos, taken in the afternoon before the delays, of a hovering object bathed in golden light and exhibiting a comet-like tail. Less than an hour before the Xiaoshan airport shut down, residents said they also saw a flying object emitting red and white rays of light.
