Not sure if this has been posted on ATS yet but we just had a giant UFO sighting here in China. Seen from Shanghai+Beijing it reminds me of the orbs
in all the STS videos (especially the tether incident) due to its transparency/luminous nature.
You can find some images and a report here
"A purported pilot on China Southern Airlines flight CZ6554 that flies the Shanghai-Changchun route weibbed an eyewitness account at 11:19pm on
On the evening of the 20th at 9pm, on flight number 6554 in the Shanghai area, I discovered at an altitude of 10,700 meters an enormous spherical
glowing heavenly body, that grew in size from small to large. Going by rules of geometry, it was larger than the moon by several hundred times, with
an estimated diameter of over 50 nautical miles. It faded away after 20 minutes, and was extremely shocking, with dozens of flight crews also
reporting to Shanghai!
Not to be outdone, Eastday reports that Beijing residents, though skeptical, claim to have seen a spherical entity above their own skies on Saturday
"The white round bubble appears in the sky and then expanded quickly, until it disappeared five minutes later," said Yu Jun, a former editor of a
scientific magazine and amateur astronomer who took pictures of the object.
"I believe the glowing bubble is not just a natural astronomical phenomenon, but is a phenomenon occurring around Earth, perhaps in the upper
atmosphere, caused by the launching of rockets or satellites," said Yu."
Lots of witnesses, reported all over mainstream Chinese media, pilot eye witness accounts, etc.
