Several airline pilots have reported sighting a shining Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) near the south-eastern Chinese city of Nanjing.
A Xiamen Airlines pilot reported the first sighting on Monday.
He said he saw a light blue object hovering past his plane.
At the same time, pilots of a Shandong airline, which was some 120 kilometres away from the Xiamen airlines plane, also reported a similar sighting.
They described the UFO as being a white and blue skateboard-shaped craft.
The UFO was believed to be some 70 kilometres above the eastern Bengbu city in Anhui province.
In recent years, China has witnessed a surge in UFO sightings.
