(Newser) – Three Chinese passenger flights en route to Batou, Inner Mongolia, were forced to circle for an hour because of a UFO, the Telegraph reports. The object seemed to hover spastically while blinking until it suddenly vanished. Airport authorities held the flights and redirected others "to guarantee safety," a spokesman said. This is the eighth UFO sighting in China since June. Little green men? Not quite: Most have been chalked up to either military tests or a Chinese custom of putting LEDs on kites and flying them at night.
