I don't see how this is news? Who cares if their carrier is on the move, we have a ton of them patrolling all the waters of the world, why do we care so much what the Chinese are doing? Even if it went into Iranian waterways who cares. It's okay for the United States to have their ships everywhere but no one else can?

Moving about in the darkness and shadows, occupying isolated places, or hiding behind screens will only attract suspicious attention. To lower an enemy's guard you must act in the open hiding your true intentions under the guise of common every day activities.

It's an aircraft carrier with no aircraft on it. How much of a threat can it be?

Thanks for posting the higher resolution images.
Still looks like an old Russian design with fresh paint though,
