Last updated July 13th, 2010.

Sighting location:

Northern China, East China’s Zhejiang Province, provincial capital Hangzhou.

Time of sighting:

2200 local time, Wednesday, July 7, 2010.

Type:

Physical evidence in the form of digital photography compels an initial categorization of CE-II (close encounter of the second kind). Object appears to possesses cabin lights, a super-luminous undercarriage, and forward looking landing lights, giving it the appearance of a three-dimensional material ‘nuts-and-bolts’ craft in the shape of a tube or elongated rectangle. Video evidence is purported to exist in addition to numerous eyewitness accounts.* Following sighting, a ‘ground-stop’ of commercial air traffic, occurred for approximately 3 plus hours. A public statement was issued by media quoting an un-named source, “authorities had learned what the UFO was after an investigation… But it was not the proper time to publicly disclose the information because there was a military connection…” and it was further stated–an official explanation would be forthcoming.

Photo Analysis:

Ground level sighting, time-lapsed digital image, about 1.5 seconds worth of exposure, under a night-time, overcast sky, in the urban environment. Atmospheric haze reduces primary object resolution by approximately 45% making exact determination of object, difficult to impossible. Relative motion of central object is slow in comparison to commercial aviation aircraft;  such as 757 or DC-9, although there is some impression given of a tubular or flattened rectangle suggesting cabin or navigation lights, and lighted undercarriage.

Conclusion:

Pending further information the most likely conclusion is a mis-identification of terrestrial aircraft, possibility experiencing mechanical difficulty, such as engine fire, engine blow-out, bird strike or less likely, other exotic airframes (e.g. ARJ21-700, J-10 multi-role fighter aircraft), under unusual atmospheric conditions; inversions, street lighting, virga rain or fog.
