UFO Over North China

UFO sighting in China!

 

An April 30 video is on YouTube at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxVXmLNRY6M

Another version of this video, albeit with many fewer viewers, has the helpful message written in English on the screen “We will achieve unification one way or another”.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IZ5wFo7Css

A Chinese Academy of Sciences expert attributed UFO sightings to an 80 kilometer night-shining (noctilucent) cloud. https://www.zhihu.com/question/275033617  and a video report on the CAS expert’s explanation. https://v.qq.com/x/page/n07140p7c50.html

Space launch expert James Oberg analyzed a similar July 2017 video of an apparent missile launch over Xinjiang:  http://jamesoberg.com/china/

Or could the recent UFO appearances show ET recognition of China as a rising power?

The article speculates that they might be some high performance military aircraft. We know that is what the aliens would have bribed them to say. It is not just Earthlings who are good at media control.

Then again, maybe foreign spies would say to patriotic Chinese, those are alien spacecraft, not Chinese military aircraft, so there is nothing wrong about a patriotic Chinese telling a fellow Earthling, albeit from a foreign intelligence service, about UFO flight characteristics!

While living in Beijing in the late 1990s, I noticed that the more nervous the Chinese got about politics, the more UFO sightings there were. Not deus ex machina exactly. Maybe ET ex machina though.

I used to read Flying Saucer Investigations 飞碟探索 http://www.zazhipu.com/pub/feidiietansuo.html back then, which boasted of being the highest-circulation UFO magazine in the world. After all, perhaps the Chinese UFO-ologists were and now are on to something.

You can’t be too careful!

Unidentified Flying objects over North China, the White House is Shocked!

November 19, 2018

Editor’s Note: Recently, according to media reports, UFOs have been seen flying over North China.

A bright light not only flew very fast but also maneuvered over North China at very high speed. This incident also attracted much attention in the West. Chinese experts say that this is a mysterious Chinese weapons test. This weapon is most likely the hypersonic warhead now under development in China. The news shocked the West. Afterwards, the White House said that it seems that China has made great progress, and the US anti-missile system will not be effective against it.

So what is a hypersonic weapon? According to the definition, a hypersonic weapon is any weapon that flies at a speed that exceeds Mach 6. That includes both the US US X51A and the Chinese DF-ZF warhead. These are two very different weapons. The X51A is similar to a cruise missile and is generally carried by a fighter. The DF-ZF is similar to a ballistic missile warhead mounted on a ballistic missile. So what does this kind of weapon do? Of course it hits its target. This kind of weapon is distinguished by its long range, high speed and high precision. This kind of weapon does not have the restrictions to which nuclear weapons are subject to and so many countries are racing to develop them. Current anti-missile systems cannot shoot down this kind of weapon. How does it avoid them?

First of all, most current anti-missile system only targets weapons when they are beyond the atmosphere in outer space. In the atmosphere most anti-missile weapons do not work.

Therefore, this weapon flies in the atmosphere to avoid detection and interception by enemy weapons systems. Secondly, even if this weapon is discovered, because of its extremely high speed, it is hard to track. Even if it can be tracked, the weapon can be maneuvered so that the enemy cannot intercept it. That is why it makes existing anti-missile systems obsolete.

The excellent penetration capability, long range and power of this weapon can make it a key weapons system of the future. As can be seen from this test, China has made a major breakthrough in successfully mastering the problem of maneuvering this weapon.

Now that the US has terminated the X51A https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_X-51_Waverider program, China now leads the world in this field.


华北上空现不明飞行物 西方愕然失色 白宫:反(图)

2018-11-19
编者按:近日,据相关媒体报道,最近中国华北上空发现了不明飞行物,一道亮光以极快的速度划过了华北上空,并还进行机动变轨。这件事也引来了西方极大的关注,中国专家表示,这是中国正在进行神秘武器测试,这款武器极有可能就是中国正在研制的高超音速弹头,得知消息后,西方愕然失色。事后,白宫表示,看来中国已经取得了很大的进展,从此美国反导体系形同虚设了。

那么什么是高超音速武器呢?对这款武器的定义是只要飞行速度超过6马赫,都能够称为高超音速武器。目前比较有代表性的就是美国X51A与中国DF-ZF弹头,这也是两款截然不同的武器,X51A类似巡航导弹,一般由战机携带发射。而DF-ZF则类似弹道导弹的弹头,一般由弹道导弹携带发射。

那么这款武器究竟有什么作用呢?最明显的作用就是打击目标,与一般打击方式相比,这种武器射程更远,速度更快,打击精度也更高。而且这款武器在使用时没有核武器那么多限制,已经成为各军事强国争夺的焦点。最关键的是,现有的反导体系在这款武器面前,几乎都失去作用了,那么它是如何实现这一功能的呢?

首先,目前反导体系一般只针对外太空的目标或者大气层内的目标,而在外太空与大气层之间的临界空间,反导武器是无能为力的。所以这款武器就是利用这一特点,主要在这个高度进行飞行,这样就避免了被敌方探测系统发现,自然就能够躲开对方的拦截了。

其次,就算这款武器即使被发现了,由于其速度极快,能不能持续性追踪目标就是一个问题。就算能够持续性跟踪到这个目标,这款武器也能够进行机动变轨,敌方依然无法拦截它,这也是为何这款武器能够令现有防空武器失效的原因了。

也真是因为这款武器突防能力强,射程远,威力大,在未来将成为主流打击武器。而从这次测试中可以看出,中国已经成功掌握这款武器的机动变轨能力,已经取得了重大突破。由于美国已经终止了X51A计划,目前看来,在这块领域,中国已经走在了世界的前列。
