The Internet is buzzing over a reported sighting of a UFO over China’s Xiaoshan Airport in Hangzhou on July 7, 2010.

According to ABC News, the unidentified object was taken serious by air traffic controllers, who immediately grounded planes ready for takeoff and rerouted incoming flights to other airports.

Contentious speculation about the nature of the object ranges from a secret Russian or American stealth plane, missile, satellite, or drone; to wilder claims of extraterrestrial visitors.

Chinese civilians also reported seeing an unusual aerial phenomenon just prior to the Xiaoshan Airport incident.

A spokesperson for the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) confirmed to ABC News that the incident remains under investigation. One unidentified source reportedly leaked that Chinese authorities had determined that there was “a military connection” to the UFO incident.

Interest in the possibility of extraterrestrial visitations has been fueled by popular science fiction and recent statements from scientists about the potential for alien life forms. The discovery of numerous planets beyond our solar system and rumors of government cover-ups of an alien presence have increased informed speculation about otherworldly visitors to Earth.

Stephen Hawking, the world’s most recognizable physicist, recently warned about the dangers of making contact with an advanced alien civilization.
