A UFO startled some officials and even shut down an airport in China this week, according to local reports. Now investigators from around the globe want to know if the yet unexplained object was something unidentified from space or the military.
Shanghai Daily reported late this week that on Wednesday night at 9:00pm local time, Xiaoshan Airport in Hangzhou City (capital of Zhejiang province in east China) was shut down for an hour when radar detected an unidentified flying object.
Inbound flights were also diverted to alternate airports and departures were delayed for approximately four hours.
Was it a UFO or secret military aircraft that caused the shutdown of China's Xiaoshan Airport for an hour on Wednesday night?
"No conclusion has yet been drawn," Wang Jian, head of air traffic control with the Zhejiang branch of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), said.
However, according to Fox News New York, another China publication, the "People's Daily Online" quoted a government source that the UFO was eventually identified, but the information was not released because it was connected to the military.
