- Half of the entire Chinese population believes in UFOs.
- Hundreds of scientists and engineers conduct thorough
studies of the unidentified phenomenon. According to Chinese ufologists,
aliens live among humans. Ugologists also claim that recently aliens started
to show more interest in China. Most recent UFO was spotted in Nanking,
- According to a Chinese pilot, he noticed a flickering
white and blue object, which hovered right beside the aircraft just as
he was about to land. The pilot observed how an oval-shaped flying object
was escorting the airplane. Then suddenly, the object made a rapid turn
and disappeared behind the clouds.
- This story could sound rather nonsensical. However, other
two pilots from other Chinese aircrafts reported the exact same phenomenon
to the control center. One of them was piloting at 120 km to the North,
while the other was flying at 300km to the South, reports "Izvestia".
- A considerable amount of such strange encounters with
"feidi" (this is how a UFO is referred to in China) has been
recorded in China for the past few years. In some cases, people saw fluorescent
orange light, above which hovered a rather strangely-shaped object. In
other instances, people witnessed an object no bigger than a basket ball
which had been divided in half right before their eyes. The two balls started
circling the area and then disappeared completely. One time, people witnessed
an object similar to a whipping top. Its trail was marked by a stripe of
light. The object was also held responsible for shutting off electricity
in several houses, since no malfunction had been reported at the electric
- One Chinese newspaper "South China Monitoring Post"
reported the most fascinating case. One hundred Chinese witnessed a double-seated
fighter-interceptor of the Chinese Air Force "playing cat-and-mouse"
with a hypothetical UFO not far away from a military base in the town of
Chinjou. A mushroom-shaped object with rotating brightly lit bottom was
spotted by four radar stations. When approaching the interceptor (in about
4,000 meters), the object instantly moved upwards. None of the ground-based
control services ordered to open fire.
- "Izvestia" reports that China has a record
number of special clubs of UFO lovers. There are many who attempt to establish
some sort of a connection with the extraterrestrial. Their actions are
protected by the National Society of the extraterrestrial studies, which
was founded 25 years ago. The Society is financed by the government. Only
professional scientists and engineers are allowed in the Society. A person
also required to have PhD in science and have several published works about
UFOs. About a third of all members of the society are also experienced
members of the communist party.
- One of Chinese most famous experts in ufology, 66-year-old
Sun Shili, who is also a former diplomat and a translator of Mao Zedong,
has told us about his first encounter with an unidentified object. It happened
in 1971 during the "cultural revolution" when Sun Shili had been
undergoing physical labor at a correctional facility high up in the mountains
of the Tsyansi province. One day, while working in the rice fields, he
spotted a strange object in the sky. He momentarily thought it was a real
- Experts from the National Society claim that half of
Chinese residents believe in such phenomenon. Sun Shili explains such interest
in UFOs in China (every fifth UFO appears in this country) in the following
way. He says that China appeals to aliens the most, due to the country's
recent breakthroughs and its aspiration to become the world's leader.
- Aliens used to be interested in the US up until recently.
According to Sun Shili (and his opinion is shared by many in the National
Society) some of the aliens live among us, by turning into humans. ©1999-2003
