By The Epoch TimesChongqing Morning Post reported on September 2, that a group of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) were seen on August 31 at about 7 p.m. in Dazu County, Chongqing Municipality of mainland China. The UFOs, which were seen by several villagers, appeared frequently in the sky. A child shouted "aliens" and then ran back into his house to hide. Villagers watched the UFOs until 10 p.m. and claimed that they had never seen anything quite like it before.
Liao Yukun, a villager of Jijia town in Dazu County, saw several bright lights in the sky as he was collecting millets in his yard. He first thought the lights might be flashlights, but soon realized that they were moving through the sky, like flying saucers.
"Several saucers had white smoke trailing behind them as they flew across the sky,” said Liao. “The saucers were semi-transparent and yellow in color when seen from a distance of about 500 meters.” “Periodically they would stop in mid-air and then a few minutes later, they would begin to rotate, just like Ferris wheels,” said Liao. “From where I stood, it looked as if they were all rotating in unison."
Liao also called his friend, Deng Daiquan, who lives about five kilometres away. Deng also saw the UFOs. "Sometimes I could only see one, sometimes I could see several UFOs at the same time," said Deng. Deng also called friends in his village, inviting them to come out and watch the UFOs.
At 9:30 p.m., Deng saw a brighter saucer approaching from the distance. It seemed to be flying directly into another UFO. Then suddenly there was a dazzling explosion, and its light painted half the sky yellow. And then, just as suddenly, the approaching saucer disappeared from the sky.
Liao describes a white band as if separating the night sky. The stars on one half of the sky were clearly visible. The other half of the sky appeared to be covered as if to hide from view. Half an hour later, the saucers disappeared and the sky returned to normal.
The next day, people talked about what they had seen. Some people said that the UFOs were aliens, some believed they were satellites, others said they might have been weather balloons or lamps.
Dazu County Bureau of Meteorology confirmed that no weather balloons had been released on that day. In addition, people from Nanping and Yongchuan Districts also claimed that they saw UFOs on the same day.
