Expert in China blames media and lack of ‘rational reasoning’ for mass UFO sightingby Cherlyn Gardner Strong on Aug. 13, 2010, under UFOs
Mass UFO sightings were again reported in China on August 7th, exactly one month after Hangzhou’s Xiaoshan Airport was shut down.
The latest UFOs in China were seen at different times on that day in Shanghai, Zhejiang, Nanjing and Ganzhou of Jiangxi Province. These latest sightings have prompted People’s Daily Online to seek the expert and rational advice of Zhu Jim, the vice chairman of the Beijing UFO Research Organization.
The expert urges the people of China to employ the skill of “rational analysis” when looking toward the sky.
Of course, the media attention is suspected of making matters worse in China. The article states: “The concentrative reporting from the media amplified the events and certain media groups were even suspected of hyping up the news.”
Hyped up news or not, the expert offers a very interesting introductory lesson in UFOs, emphasizing the distinct differences between UFOs and flying saucers. He offers rational explanations for most sightings and offers many explanations for them that most people wouldn’t think of, from kites to insects. It says, “…most UFO events can be explained by rational reason through systematic investigation and comprehensive analysis.”
The problem is that kites and insects aren’t usually the cause of airport shutdowns.
