Both excellent observations. I too wouldn’t mind thinking that it was an alien spacecraft observing the launch of the first manned Chinese rocket.
However, both Gamma and Dmsoldier have good points… the Chinese have made it quite clear to all that they don’t screw around when it comes to the
sovereignty of their air space. How much more fervent would their protection be of such a momentous event for their country and culture.
Just as in American and Russian space launches I am sure that the Chinese had very robust surveillance of the areas’ skies in both visual and other
Therefore, if there were an unwelcome guest observing the launch, especially after the Columbia disaster, the launch would certainly have been delayed
while the visitor was either destroyed or chased off.
Probably a balloon to show wind nuances ...But I wish it were an alien craft~
