Has anyone yet seen this report supposedly coming out of China?

www.foxnews.com...

I am really unsure whether to post or not... the image is familiar but the comments and story date are today...

Could use some input and... if I got played, hoping the mods take it down before the mob arrives.

No don't be sorry, that's a new story.

They talk about the old incident towards the end of the article. It's from Fox News and dated today.

Anyway, great find S&F

I looked a little deeper and found this.


The Chongqing government has not officially offered an explanation of what the object was. However, the airport authority told Chongqing media they suspected, based on eyewitnesses accounts, it could be a sky lantern or a large balloon. An investigation is under way. A sky lantern is a traditionally used by Chinese when praying for good luck. Sky lanterns, widely known as Kongming lanterns, was named after their supposed inventor, Chinese sage and military strategist Zhuge Liang, whose reverent term of address was Kongming. The news that a UFO was sighted at the Jiangbei airport spread quickly across Chinese social networking websites yesterday, creating much excitement online. The airport said two flights from Beijing that were about to land had to divert to two other airports in the region following the restricted traffic alert. Two other flights en route to the airport were also forced to land elsewhere, said officials. By 1:20pm, the alert was lifted and normal traffic resumed, the airport said. The affected aircraft started returning to Chongqing later yesterday. This is not the first time a UFO has been seen at Chongqing. A year ago, news of UFOs in the municipality also stirred up wide public attention. But local media later said people had mistaken a number of glittering kites for aliens. The media said there was a regular group of kite enthusiasts who regularly gathered on a hilltop to fly their kites. People witnessing these from further away could take them for UFOs, reports said.

hmmm, here's obviously another reason to never trust Fox.

With all the alien news coming out last months one could almost think they HAVE to come up with something, so they take a 2yo picture and make a story up..

and btw, wasn't this picture taken in georgia or russia or something?

Looks like the exact same picture as used in this youtube clip taken in Moscow in 2009. I don't think it would be a UFO, rather, I think a Chinese HAARP experiment was underway there. My two cents.



If you stop the video at EXACTLY 12 seconds in, you will find out the video and the picture in the Fox story are the EXACT same. See for yourself

Fox has an annoying habit of using photos that are totally unrelated to the article. If you click on the photo you'll see the following caption:



Looking like a scene right out of the movie Independence Day, this glowing halo in the sky was seen in the sky over Moscow, Russia in early October 2009. UFO experts were baffled by the sighting but Moscow's weather bureau claimed the effect was caused by several weather fronts passing through Moscow as the sun shined from the west.


So the article is about a recent event in China, the photo is from a Russian sighting in 2009. Not deceiving at all
I haven't been able to locate a photo or video to go with this sighting.
