Chinese Scientists Claim to Have UFO Footage

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 69 comments

Solar eclipses are amazing to see by themselves, but Chinese scientists who recently witnessed one are saying they saw something even more amazing: a UFO.

The Daily Mail today reports that Chinese scientists at the Purple Mountain Observatory in Nanjing claim to have recorded 40 minutes of clear UFO footage while observing total solar eclipse on July 22.

The Mail reports that the scientists were not the only ones to see the unidentified flying object in the skies over Deqing in Guandong Province. Dozens of students are said to have also observed and photographed the object.

Purple Mountain Observatory says it's "organizing the manpower to deal with the data" and that it will take one year to come up with any results.

From the Mail:

'Currently manpower is being organised to deal with this data, complete the data analysis and reveal the scientific results. This will take at least one year's time to finalised'

Purple Mountain Observatory, Chinese Academy of Sciences Fellow Ji Hai-sheng said at present it is impossible to speculate what the unidentified object is.

'However research has started.'

    Why are such pictures never in focus? It is some sort of unwritten rule that any photographic evidence of something considered to be unproven must be grainy, blurry, and barely in frame?

    jellico:

    Same question I always ask. Why are ufo and ghost pictures always some blurry junk that could be anything? Heck, that blurry thing could be a smudge mark from a fat reporter eating a chocolate bar. Sheesh.

    Perhaps it was a top secret Chinese test craft to which they deny any knowledge. Or it could be a North Korean ICBM reject that got turned around.

    Of course it's a UFO, an "Unidentified Flying Object." Doesn't mean it's aliens, lol.

    Maybe UFO's and Bigfoot are blurry and the camera's are actually getting great footage!?
    Or of course it could be the usual hoax....
