UFO Sighting: Objects Shaped Like Chinese Lanterns Seen In India, Chinese Army Accused Of 'Psychological Attack'
By Staff Writer | June 09, 2013 12:40 AM EDT
Since the Indian Army and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force reported "luminous" UFO sightings in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir last November, intelligence agencies have theorized a psychological operation by the Chinese army using Chinese lanterns to spook Indian residents.

According to India Today, the yellowish spheres came from the Chinese border and traveled in the air for a few hours before disappearing. Army officials have ruled out the objects as unmanned aerial vehicles, drones, or low-orbiting satellites.
A team of scientists from Indian Space Research Organisation were sent investigate the objects, and requests to shoot down one of the UFOs were declined to as not to unsettle nearby residents.
"We are worried that there may be a flare-up if the Indian troops decide to shoot these objects," said a source.
India police have reported more than 100 UFO sightings in 2012 alone, reported Kejixun.
Such reports have raised security concerns near the China-Indian border.
"We can't ignore these sightings. We need to probe what new technology might have been deployed there," said former Indian Air Force chief P.V. Naik.
Last month, a Chinese research rocket was mistaken for a UFO after it was launched around 9:00 pm on May 19.
"The consequence of this rocket launch, which is a common occurrence, is that many UFO believers mistook it for the latest visit by alien guests, as people across the southern part of China, including Chongqing, Kunming, Hong Kong, Changsha, Haikou, and Wuhan, all took images of the rocket and posted them on the internet," reported China Daily.
This rocket reportedly belonged to the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) and was used to collect date about high energy and magnetic fields in the ionosphere.
Do the UFO sightings in Indian have similar scientific explanations?
Reportedly, a spectrum analyzer was used to deconstructs the UFOs, and detected nothing, meaning, it was nonmetallic.
