'UFO' Reported Over China "Many Times Bigger Than the Moon" - August 20, 2011
A microblogger claiming to be the pilot of Flight CZ6554 from Shanghai to Changchun wrote he had seen a huge bright spherical object at 10,700 meters above Shanghai about 9 pm on Saturday.
The object grew larger and appeared as a regular geometric sphere hundreds of times larger than the Moon, he said.
"Its diameter reached as long as 50 nautical miles," the microblogger wrote.
"At first I thought I was hallucinating until the copilot asked me whether I saw it too," he wrote. "It was so big that it occupied the whole side window, and the other flights had already reported it as we prepared to do so."
