Internet users across China have become convinced that they have spotted a UFO hovering in the night sky.
Users from as far apart as Ningxia, Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia – covering distances of more than 1,000km - posted photos of the unusual light which was spotted on the night of May 23.
Even the Civil Aviation Authority’s own publication ‘Hangkong Wuyu’ joined in the debate, arguing that the strange light was actually a rocket launch, said the People's Daily Online.
One Twitter user @ArchMaoyaning insisted: ‘I believe it could be a cloud but looking at the times the posters claim the photos were taken it doesn’t quite seem right.
‘Is it the scene of a rocket launch? I feel it may be interpreted as a UFO.’
