While living in Beijing in the late 1990s, I noticed that during times of political tension, UFO sightings went way up. I wonder if that is still true. I’ll be watching, and maybe the aliens will too.
Look what has been going on this summer. While we Americans have adopted a strange new custom of dousing ourselves with ice water, the PLA has been gaining ground fast thanks to some kindly extra-terrestrials.
Maybe Radio Moscow was right: in a Moscow Mailbag program in the mid 60s, a listener asked “Should we fear an alien invasion?”
“Have no fear, answered Radio Moscow. “Any society sufficiently advanced to have developed interstellar travel will certainly have already become a peace-loving Communist society!”
In a 2014 article on a Chinese UFO website published entitled “Extraterrestrials Have Reveal Astonishing Secrets to the Chinese Government : “As we all know, the US obtained extraterrestrial flying saucer technology some years ago, and has been plotting to selfishly keep this knowledge from the rest of humanity.

The 2006 UCal Press book China Candid: the people on the People’s Republic Interview by Sang Ye. Translated and edited by Geremie R. Barmé with Miriam Lang has a chapter-long interview with a leading Chinese UFOlogist. Enticing bits from this book ( p. 289 onwards) can be found on Google Books.
While living in China I sometimes read a Chinese UFO magazine based in Lanzhou that billed itself as the world’s largest circulation UFO magazine: The Journal of UFO Research Fēidié tànsuǒ 飞碟探索 . The magazine carried some UFO contact reports and science fiction stories. The magazine website used to be http://www.fdts.cn/ Their URL is now blank with a note that a new website is being prepared. I hope the aliens haven’t gotten angry about their secrets getting out and so abducted the staff of “The Journal of UFO Research”!
Even if the aliens have suppressed The Journal of UFO Research on the China mainland, the Taiwan UFO Study Society is going strong 台灣飛碟學會─UFO-外星人
Their Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/taiwanufosociety/
I did find the website of another Chinese UFO study group that seems to maintain their network server outside of China — in India — perhaps to keep it out of the hands of the Alien Propaganda Department 外星人宣传部. Called “The Truth about Aliens and UFOs” 外星人UFO真相 the website at http://www.ufo.org.in/ includes articles about both UFOs and aliens, what they are up to today and their influence on ancient Chinese civilizations.
The Chinese Communist Party in principle does not allow space to religions not recognized by the Party and this thread of UFO research and belief likely faces some obstacles in China.
