Indian troops report wave of UFO sightings

Soldiers in India have reported several sightings of unidentified flying objects over the China border.
Reports have been hitting the headlines in India and elsewhere concering claims of more than 100 individual sightings of strange objects in the skies over the Line of Actual Control with China.

Army troops and police officers stationed in the Ladakh region have described "yellowish spheres" that appeared to "lift off from the horizon on the Chinese side and slowly traverse the sky for three to five hours before disappearing."

Despite concerns over possible incursions, military officials have played down suggestions that these objects could be drones or military aircraft flying over the 2,100-mile border.

When queried about the incidents, Defence Minister A K Antony denied any concern and stated that there was no conclusive evidence that sightings of unidentified flying objects had actually taken place over the region at all.

Sounds to me like the Chinese are experimenting with new types of aircraft.

Sounds to me like the Chinese are experimenting with new types of aircraft. Or ET is looking in on the situation. Better to table other options than be narrow.

Birds are cool. So are UFO's. They are extremely difficult to debunk. Care to try?

A simple observation drone could be fabricated by attaching a lightweight camera to a chinese lantern. A stealthy way to observe is to hide the observer in plain sight. Using chinese lanterns as a way to hide surveillance equipment would certainly be an inexpensive way to spy on what's happening along the border, but if one of them were to land on the enemy side and be examined they would be found out straight away. Lanterns are also notoriously difficult to control once they are in the air, the wind can change at a moment's notice and they can end up going anywhere.

Thats why they must include a fortune cookie with a clever quote inside,Like "Take this message to your leader , "We mean no harm, return this recording device to the Mother ship across the border " Maybe they will or not ?

I remember the same story a while back, turned out to be chinese lanterns. Makes complete sense to being on the China border. lol. So are UFO's. They are extremely difficult to debunk. Care to try? Unidentified flying object. Nothing more, nothing less. They are also extremely difficult to prove as alien space craft, but much easier to debunk as a bird.

. I myself look up into the sky and will see Venus, etc., but, these planets are not moving, they're stationary...and will also be there the following nights after that, same time, same position.... Then you must live in some twilight alternate universe where star/planet locations never change in the sky through out the night, because here on planet Earth, as the night goes on, the stars change location in the sky from the planetary rotation.
