    Would not be surprised if it is some crazy new technology for flight.

    Don`t forget, the US hid the stealth bomber from everyone for decades before revealing it...they had to test fly it somewhere...

    Like I said before. We all wouldn`t be talking here if it was a U.S. ICBM.

    People need to learn how to differentiate "UFO" from "Extraterrestrial" and "Supernatural". It IS an UFO, as no one has identified what it is, beyond a doubt. However: is it an ICBM or some other type of rocket? Most likely.

    It DOES look like a helicopter with a searchlight flying in front of a camera with a slow shutter speed. Thus, a moving object would be a blur, just like this.

    COME ON PEOPLE, easy camera trick.

    No body of these forums has even said it wasn`t a UFO, why did you say that?

    China testing top secret flight technology over China would be more likely. They must have some secret military projects - who hasn`t?

    Or maybe it`s fake for some political reason. It`s easier to fake things in China than in a free country.

    Or maybe it`s a Chinese missile that went wrong in some way.

    Who cares?

    I don`t think there`s a long exposure option on video cameras since there is video of it. Try again.

    Yeah, the video looked NOTHING like the pictures. The video has no lights involved. Look at that link Oryfoxer posted - its OBVIOUS.

    If we photographed a helicopter with a spotlight using a slow shutter speed, we`d expect to see a single white line (as well as the light "curtain"), and several red dots, just like we see in the "UFO" pics. In that excellent illustrative link posted by Oryfoxer, we see the same exact effect, absent the "curtain," since it doesn`t look like that chopper is using a searchlight.

    Surprised the pictures got as much play as they did. The pics and the video are clearly different things.

    Why multiple pictures from different places / angles? Its called a UFO hoax people! See, e.g., link

    The video was of an earlier thing that happened a few weeks before that didn`t shut anything down, but they were comparing it.

    The pictures are what shut down the airport.

    But no one`s willing to believe that it`s anything that they can`t explain.

    At the moment I`m pretty sure that`s a U.F.O. The term doesn`t say extraterrestrial, it just says it`s unidentified which it is.

    Im sorry but 1...this is not the same thing as that video which I can see from the commentss most of you agree...And 2, this more closly resembles a helicopter or plane with long exposure. I will assume helicopter with a searchlight on pointeaat the ground which creates the light undernieth in this picture

    Trying to explain things is part of being human.

    I`m willing to acknowledge that there are many things I can`t explain, but that doesn`t mean that any of them are impossible to explain nor does it mean that I couldn`t explain them if I learned enough relevant things.

    "It`s not explained" simply isn`t a good enough explanation of anything.

    Most of the photos and the footage going along with this story aren`t even from China and are obviously long exposure shots of helicopters or footage of missiles.
    As for the UFO itself, it was probably Venus.
    The runway that flight controllers spotted the UFO on was facing the West where Venus was more than usually visible. Surprisingly, when Venus set on the horizon the UFO disappeared.
    Here`s one link: http://forget omori.com/2010/ufos/ ufo-over-hangzhou-china-a-long-expos/

    ""It`s not explained" simply isn`t a good enough explanation of anything."

    Yes, but sometimes, it`s all you can say for the moment, unless you truly know the answer behind all of it.

    Not saying that it`s a bad thing to give opinions on what it could be.

    5Cats:
    Venus isn`t as visible in the night sky all the time, the specific day of the UFO sighting was a day when Venus is particularly visible in the sky and the UFO disappeared at the time Venus would have stopped being visible.

    wtf ??? Jesus, i saw none of that in the video.... its obviously a `long exposure` shot mixed with a little photoshop. Seriously, i do believe in UFO`s, but, even though very strange it was, i fall towards a secret rocket test. Pathetic this news report just accepted those pics and obviously did no research. Sad it is

    It is clearly a long exposure shot. Looks like the red ligts are the lights on the wing of a plane and the white shining down, is the headlights, stretched out because of the exposure.

    i believe that there is intelligent life somewhere out there but i always have a question for UFO believers.

    if it truly is a UFO and it came this close to earth that we could actually see it, why wouldnt it land? why doesnt it ever land? wouldnt it like to meet other intelligent life as well?

    the original vid was not an airplane, it was a chinese military ICBM test....the last thing the would do is notify the public. You can see the second stage take off..... the strang plume was just the smoke trail in a highly humid sky along with a unique type of rocket engine.... it is that simple and i just guessed it.... i am a UFO lover and believer, this was not a UFO

    It`s probably one of those new top secret high-g neutralizing rocket/jet contraptions made by the UN or some international committee? Either that or china`s building more rockets. Maybe some day we`ll have so many airborne objects that seeing one won`t be a big deal?

    looks pretty similar tothe new virgin galactic space plane thing. with the round windows, red colouring etc. could be publicity stunt? Wouldnt put it past Branston. put it this way, if a real Alian UFO had been here we would ALL know about it by now! and would be more than two or three pics and few random vids!
