This UFO news came from China today over If you cannot read Chinese, here is a basic translation from me, please execuse my English.

The news: On Nov 1, 2002, from 2:30 AM to 6:00 AM, a UFO was hanging over the eastern sky of Yi-NING city, XinJiang Province (the province is located in Western China, near Russia). Four journalists observed and photoed this UFO from different angels and areas.

On Nov 1 at 2:30 AM, one caller called the hotline of a newspaper and said "come out, there is a flying saucer in the estern sky!" One journalist said, over the eastern sky, he saw a bright rice sized object emitted with yellow, blue, and pink lights. Around 4:20 AM, all fo the sudden, the object became big, the color changed to deep red, the shape is ball-like. The size of the object became 1/4 size of the moon that night. The surface of the object has different cycles. Later, the object moved to the south, a few seconds later, it became a rice size again. Around 6:05 AM, the object became big again, seconds later, it disappeared.

A professor at Nanjing Scientific Observation of Chinese Science Academy studied 27 pictures took by the journalists, he believed the object came from somewhere rather than the earth, this is not a natural formation like weather etc.

He said the object is NOT a ballon, airplane, cloud, rocket, or lights from skycrapers, neither a satellite because satellite won't be able to seen over the eastern sky of Xinjiang (Russia). He also estimated this object was turning and emitting some small objects, the height of this object was about 10000 meters above the earth.
