City Frightened About UFO Last Night, May Be Rocket Launch In China, April 27, 2018, UFO Sighting News.
Date of sighting: April 27, 2018
Location of sighting: Taiyuan, China

These photos were taken over Taiyuan city, China last night. Many residents thought the object was a UFO, but there is a Satellite Launch Center 200km away which may be responsible. Such UFO sightings have been seen before world wide, but I have to admit, the photos do resemble those that Ellon Musk posted about his rocket launch...or a failed rocket launch. Still, it is a strange sight to see.

The base , Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center, located 200 kilometers southwest of Taiyuan, is the long-range missile launch base of the General Assembly , taking into account the satellite launch mission. The first-stage trail is serpentine and the second stage is spiral . It does not rule out rocket launch failure. At dusk, although the ground was dark, there was still sunshine above 100 kilometers. When the rockets were launched to this altitude , the trails were illuminated very brightly, and the scene just appeared. Of course, many people think that it is UFO, but basically all atmospheric optical phenomena of space activities , is not surprising. However, this scene is also very rare, cherish it, and generally can not see.
