UFO Tomfoolery Spreads in China
"CHINESE social media was awash with UFO speculation after people in several cities reported seeing this spiral of light across the night sky.
Some were just curious or puzzled, while others terrified at the blazing object, which experts said was not a meteorite.
The unusual trail left many speculating that it might have been a UFO of an extra-terrestrial origin.
Eyewitness Hu Yin said: "It was clearly visible in the sky and many people simply stopped what they were doing just to watch it because it was so unusual."
It seems that even in China, Chinese lanterns are confused for flying saucers. UFO tomfoolery would be stopped in its tracks if Chinese lanterns were outlawed.
Chinese experts said the blazing object wasn`t a meteorite, but that doesn`t mean it was a flying saucer of extraterrestrial origin.
At least there isn`t a MUFON chapter in China, or they would be interviewing the witnesses and further spreading UFO tomfoolery.
China may be a totalitarian hellhole, but at least they don`t put up with MUFON or any other organization spreading UFO tomfoolery.
