Forgotten Incident: Huge UFO Blocking the Sky Over Xiaoshan Airport

In the summer of 2010, the skies over Hangzhou’s Xiaoshan Airport became the center of attention as a huge UFO disrupted the regular bustle of air traffic. On the evening of July 7th, operations came to an abrupt halt when unidentified lights appeared, leading to a cascade of delayed and rerouted flights.

The alert was triggered by bright lights in the sky that moved erratically. Reports claim that air traffic controllers at the Hohhot Air Traffic Management Bureau spotted the object on their radar.

A flight crew preparing for descent first detected the object around 8:40 p.m. and notified the air traffic control department. Aviation authorities responded within minutes, grounding outbound flights and diverting inbound ones to airports in Ningbo and Wuxi.

The incident was so exceptional that the airport even sounded the air defense siren for it and warplanes patrolled all night. At that time, thousands of people at the airport witnessed the scene, taking photos and videos of different quality.

Eighteen flights were affected. Though normal operations resumed an hour later, the incident captured the attention of the Chinese media and sparked a firestorm of speculation on the UFO’s identity.

After about an hour, the object and the lights suddenly vanished and passenger jets were allowed to land.

Fueling speculations further, Hangzhou residents released photos, taken in the afternoon before the delays, of a hovering object bathed in golden light and exhibiting a comet-like tail.

Less than an hour before the Xiaoshan airport shut down, residents said they also saw a flying object emitting red and white rays of light.

Ma Shijun was taking a nighttime stroll with his wife when he saw the object.

“I felt a beam of light over my head. Looking up, I saw a streak of bright, white light flying across the sky, so I picked up the camera and took the photo. The time was 8:26 p.m. However, whether the object was a plane, or whether it was Xiaoshan Airport’s UFO, I don’t have a clear answer,” Ma told the Xinhua news agency.

The Hangzhou meteorological authorities proposed a more mundane explanation, suggesting the afternoon visuals were likely reflections from an aircraft. Zhu Jing, curator of the Beijing Planetarium, supported this theory regarding Ma’s photograph, comparing the image to the familiar sight of an airplane’s strobe lamps.

The following day, reports emerged from Chongqing, where another unidentified flying object was sighted, adding to the nationwide curiosity and debate.

After a few days, Chinese news reported that authorities learned what the UFO was after an investigation, but “there was no appropriate time to publicly disclose” the information because it had a “military connection,” state-run China Daily concluded.

And that’s literally all. Yes, that’s where the news on this scale ends. No investigations, nothing.

This incident happened in 2010, when smartphones were not popular, but thousands of people witnessed UFOs, so many videos and photos were left on the Chinese network at that time.

A day later, all these videos and pictures were deleted by government departments. Even the news of CCTV reporting the event was deleted on that day. Only a few photos and videos left

Despite conflicting official explanations and eyewitness accounts, the true nature of the lights remains an open question.
