Scientists are baffled as panicked Chinese upload photos of phenomenon. This reminds me of the Mysterious bubble-like light burst seen over Hawaii.
Dozens of people spotted an unidentified, glowing object above Shanghai and Beijing at the same time.
The giant ball of light appeared Saturday night.
A pilot flying from Shanghai to Changchun was the first to post information about the colossal light online.
The pilot says the so-called “UFO” grew in size and ended up being about 100 times larger than the moon.
He said the sphere slowly faded as it hovered above Shanghai for nearly 20 minutes.
An expert from Shanghai UFO Research Center suspects the UFO could be the fragment of a satellite launched by Russia two days earlier.
