On May 23, internet users from different parts of northwestern China including Ningxia, Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia said they witnessed an unidentified flying object in the sky, with many suspecting it to be a new spacecraft or missile, reports state-run Global Times. The event took place the night of May 23.

The zig-zag trail is characteristic of wind shift at increasing altitudes, and is commonly misinterpreted to mean the actual object zig-zagged. Note both ends of the trail. At the bottom the trail can be seen to continue without direct illumination, allowing rough estimate of range if exact time is known. At the top, the trail stops without widening which usually happens near the von Karman line about 100 km up, suggesting this is not a space launch.... I wish we had dashcam videos.

The images are long enough after sunset to suggest the event occurred about 21:00 local [= gmt + 8 hrs]. Some celestial objects are also visible but NOT in the same position for all images, consistent with different viewing azimuths from sites far apart, exactly as reported.

Interesting catch Jim.
Do you think it was the second stage that we're seeing?
Do you think it's traveling West?

Not a conventional rocket... Definitely an U.F.O.

I'd say an experimental rocket or engine of sorts.

What's unconventional about it? Here's a Minuteman (regular old rocket) launch from Vandenberg.

Crazy... I've seen a lot of rocket launches and haven't seen any trails that zigged and zagged that much.

You maybe haven't watches enough. High altitude winds shift the originally straight path sideways in different directions, it's very common, I can't figure why you haven't seen it.

It is looks for me like a failure start. The rockets does not have enough power to pull up and starts turning around and fall.

Maybe a closer guess than we knew -- it might have been the hypersonic warhead glide test, developing.....
