100s of UFOs sighted along Indian border

Officials remain puzzled following large numbers of UFO sightings along the India / China border.

Between August 1st and October 15th over 100 mysterious objects have been observed in the skies across the region. Some of the reports describe a "yellowish sphere" that lifts off from the horizon and travels across the sky for several hours before disappearing. Military officials investigating the reports have ruled out the possibility that the objects are unmanned drones or satellites.

A team of astronomers from Indian Astronomical Observatory decided to try and solve the mystery themselves by observing the objects over the course of several days. While they were unable to determine what the UFOs were, they did manage to rule out planets or meteors as possible explanations.

"Over the past few months -- between August 1 and October 15 -- more than 100 UFOs have been seen along the India-China border, and the sightings have officials puzzled."

Top security brass of Indian government battling threat from Chinese side: tennis ball-sized UFOs Hundreds of (UFOs) have been sighted inside the Indian territory bordering China in recent months, raising security concerns. The issue, initially dubbed a minor one, has turned serious as India prepares to raise it at the diplomatic level with China.

This story is certainly hotting up. If this is going to be thrashed out at a diplomatic meeting between India and China, I suspect that we can assume that prosaic explanations like celebratory fire balloons have been carefully ruled out, which is what the article claims. One of the lights was reportedly seen for eight hours. This is remarkably long for UFO, and unthinkably long for a fire balloon. If these were some kind of Chinese surveillance drones, one wonders why they would draw attention to themselves by carrying a light.

lets hope it is just a few celebratory lanterns. In todays world when lights them start appearing it generally means a war is about to brake out!

Who confirmed it was not manmade and how did they confirm this? I don't think anyone with a clue would suggest meteors as meteors don't slowly rise over the horizon and move across the sky. Anyway, meteors can't be detected long before that arrive. The vast majority of meteors that are visible are small objects moving extremely fast that burn up quickly in the atmosphere. They aren't detectable as they are far too small and fast and have such a short life-span in the atmosphere that they are generally only 'detected' by being seen by people. How do you know it h...

These "yellowish spheres" are very perplexing. If no other object is seen attached to them, this probably rules out the possibility of them being light or engines of "otherworldly craft". Any other sightings of UFOs that look like saucers, space craft, ect. have a better chance of making some sense out them.

That article explains the situation much better. Oie has to wonder, if these are tennis sized balls of light, the expressed fear seems rather an over exaggeration. I often onder what Giorgio thinks of all the memes of him. Well as we can see not everyone thinks they are alien. And with tennis ball sized ships, they want to be pretty darn small, and perhaps not so much of a threat when one can step upon these alien invader overlords to overcome them. Army people are getting all up in arms, astronomers are not. That does seem to be something of a pattern with regards to al... [More]
