Chinese officials have reported a UFO sighting while they were on an airplane and, in case anyone thought it was just a case of baijiu-induced hallucinations, they snapped pictures of it too.

In a report from Xinhua, the government-sponsored news agency, a group of journalists and officials were on a Southern Airlines flight in late February when one of them noticed an unusual luminous object traveling alongside their vessel.

After excitedly pointing it out to everyone around him, one journalist managed to snap a few photos before the object suddenly changed directions and swerved north east. The witnesses debated whether it had been a plane – but later, another plane did appear and everyone agreed that it looked nothing like the unidentified object they'd just seen.

Altogether, the alleged UFO sighting lasted about a minute. Any idea what it could have been? Aliens? Solar flares? AMERICAN SPIES?! [Xinhua]

God damned it, I am so sick and tired of people ignoring that fact that WE ARE NOT ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE!!

How absolutely selfish of us to think so.

If this was in fact another being - HEAVEN BLESS IT!!

If not, than the journalism world needs to do more research on this very subject.

As fictional as something like Star Trek, or Star Wars is, really, humanity - we do need to become more tolerant.

If life here on Earth is any model for what is out there in the universe, than clearly, there are countless species within nature, no matter where you are.

And just think.... Your laptop/flat screen may just be alien technology! :-D
