Chinese Astronomer Claims Some UFOs Are Of Extraterrestrial Origin
A veteran Chinese planetary astronomer has announced his conclusion that some UFOs are of extraterrestrial origin.
Professor Wang Sichao, of the Purple Mountain Observatory (Zijinshan Astronomical Observatory in Nanjing, China) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, delivered a speech on August 23 in the city of Guangzhou, during which he stated that some UFOs appear to be extraterrestrial spacecraft that demonstrate anti-gravity capability and may be engaged in research activities.
This follows China Daily's August 2 report that Sichao has predicted that UFOs might appear in 2011 or 2012. His prediction, made on the Yangcheng Evening News, referenced "the possible existence of 2.5 billion planets with possible civilization and advanced technology in the Milky Way Galaxy, among which the earth and its civilization are merely at a primary evolution stage."
In September 2009, scientists at the Purple Mountain Observatory reported that they'd filmed a UFO for 40 minutes during the July 22 solar eclipse. Observatory director Ji Hai-sheng said, "Currently manpower is being organized to deal with this data, complete the data analysis and reveal the scientific results and this will take at least one year's time to finalize."
During his August 23 speech in Guangzhou, Sichao stated that UFOs have been observed by astronomers traveling as fast as 80 percent of the speed of light at distances of between 150 and 1,500 km from Earth.
"If they are friendly to us," Sichao said, "we can promote the human beings' civilization through exchange and cooperation with them. If they are not, as long as we prepared for their invasion, we can beat them back on their weaknesses."
This outlook is at variance with theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking's prediction earlier this year that mankind likely would suffer from any contact with extraterrestrial civilizations.
Is Great Wall of UFO Secrecy crumbling in China?
It's notable that Sichao's statements were published in China's People's Daily, because that newspaper is the official news agency of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC).Continued on the next page
