The reason I focus more on these than the domestic UFOs is because the Chinese incidents tend to be more elaborate, at least in the recent past that is. We have a regular (Nobbles) on GT that often jokes about UFOs being Chinese Lanterns. Ironically it seems the only place we don’t see Chinese Lantern UFOs is in China!
This video was taken near the Russian border in the northern city of Changchun, China on August 27 by student Xiao Lai. The incident was witnessed by several people and made the major news outlets.
If you look closely beginning @ 0.25 you will notice something strangely familiar. Kick your memory into gear and blow it up in your mind and you have the STS-75 Tether Incident UFO. Sure, it’s much smaller due to distance but I certainly see the similarity.
A little more interesting than a Chinese Lantern, huh Nobbles?
