China is Serious about UFOs

The Huffington Post mentioned recent UFO sightings in China, “four lantern-like objects forming a diamond shape…hovered over the city’s Shaping Park for over an hour…. Last week, flights were diverted in Hangzhou, also in eastern China – after a mysterious object was seen hovering in the sky.”

I wrote about descriptions that sounded like UFOs in God, Ancient Astronauts and China’s Yellow Emperor.

In fact, Early Chinese texts tell of long-lived rulers from the heavens who flew in “fire-breathing dragons”.

In Tibet there is a book called the Kantyua, which means “the translated word of Buddha”. It tells of flying “pearls in the sky” and of transparent spheres carrying gods to visit man. Source:

In 1947, a Chinese newspaper, the Commons Daily, reported that witnesses saw UFOs appearing over Wuhan.

Then in The Chinese Roswell by Hartwig Hausdorf, the author spent years in China uncovering tell-tale traces of an alien mind which may have passed that way millennia ago.

“It shouldn’t come as a surprise that many fascinating accounts of flying machines, unexplained celestial observations and close encounters with strange beings can be found quite extensively in historical and literary works from China.” Source: Open Minds

Conservative state-run newspapers and television media often report UFO sightings. China has a bimonthly UFO magazine devoted to UFO research, The Journal of UFO Research, which was launched in February 1981, circulation 400,000. Source: The Independent
