Five Friends, A Trip to China, and A UFO in the Sky Above, ...Pictures of Incident

This is an observation, and as such, take it upon yourself to discern your own beliefs. My only reason for this report is to document the incident.

On November 20, 2007 I was traveling with four friends and a driver in Beijing, China. We were on vacation visiting the country and enjoying the sights.

I was sitting in the back seat of the car, if you could call it a seat, because the little suv was full with the 6 of us. I was looking out the front window past the driver when my friend says, "Hey guys, whats that up in the sky by the tower?"

We didn't know what to think as we clamored to the left side of the car to get a good look. Everyone else immediately saw it, except the driver (he spoke absolutely no English)and myself, and began to throw around comments like, "it's a blimp" or "maybe it's a ufo."

As I struggled in vain to find the object, my friends took out there cameras and snapped a couple of images of the ufo and tower. Eventually, I saw it. The reason I had missed it was because I assumed the altitude of the supposed object to be around 3,000 - 5,000ft.

In actuality, the ufo was at an altitude of 15,000 - 20,000ft (roughly. See photo). The ufo itself appeared round and definitely had a grey/metallic color. It hovered/remained still the entire time we watched (2-3min), that is, until it vanished from view. I don't know exactly how, but when my eyes were distracted momentarily they returned to find the object gone. Vanished completely, with no sign of it in the surrounding area or contrails.

In total, five of us saw the object. I forgot about the incident because it was a friend who took the photographs. Later, remembering the incident, I got copies of it and looked at them. I didn't see anything. That is, until I began to zoom in and scan the area I remember seeing the object around.

Another interesting piece of the puzzle was in the second photo, the object is a little more blurred but there are 4 gold/yellow disk's at approximately the same height only about a mile or two away. I did not mention these disk's earlier because I did not actually see them that day, only the one ufo. It was only upon scrutinizing the photos that I saw them. I am not sure whether or not my friends saw them in addition to the one object.

I have four photos of the incident. Only two of them containing anything. The other two are after the object departed.

Hope this is helpful.
