Expert: V-shaped 'UFO' Is A Kite
By Winny Wang

An unidentified flying object seen by many people last night
over Shanghai and reported by local media was a night-light
kite, eastday.com reported today, citing an expert from Sheshan

The 'UFO' appeared in the night sky over the boundary of Hongkou
and Yangpu districts around 9pm. The color of the V-shaped
object changed regularly from red to blue to green and then
yellow. Many people were convinced it was a UFO and kept
watching it.

Many witnesses claimed it was flying higher than an airplane.

Tang Haiming, an expert with Sheshan Observatory, said the
object could be seen in a small area, which means its altitude
was not as high as some witnesses claimed.

"If it is an aircraft, it should have a flying route rather than
floating in the sky," Tang said.

Tang said there were two kinds of night-light kites, one
carrying materials that can reflect light and another equipped
with light-emitting diodes. Some of the kites can fly as high as
1,000 meters.

An official with China's aviation authority urged residents not
to put lights on kites and to keep the kites below 1,000-meter
high, or the sight of pilots will be affected.
