The recent UFO sightings in China have received a lot of buzz in the Memphis area. Many residents are once again reminded of last May when there was an alleged UFO sighting in nearby Horn Lake, Mississippi.
The China UFO’s closed an airport and also unleashed a worldwide buzz of chatter across the blogosphere and around video share sites such as YouTube.com.
The Atlantic reports that the “video” of the sighting wasn’t even filmed in China. They quoted Geoffrey Forden, a specialist at MIT, as saying “ Unfortunately, this video is not from Hangzhou but from Kazakhstan and was taken on June 30th and shows a Progress M launch from the Baikonur.”
Military exercises are commonly the explanation for UFO sightings. While many are hopoing that it’s indicative of an extraterrestrial setting, no one has ever honestly came forward and indicated that another world tried to make contact with us.
The military was coined as the root cause of the Horn Lake sighting last year. Even though it didn’t close or divert traffic from Memphis International Airport, it still was something that people around the world talked about.
Hopefully one day there will be a credible UFO sighting somewhere in the world. Maybe if there is another world out there those within our world will finally resolve our differences and get along.
