Traffic in the city of Guangzhou, China, reportedly came to a standstill recently after a flying saucer UFO appeared in the sky over the city. Hundreds of stunned commuters and drivers stopped to stand, stare and snap photographs. Some witnesses panicked as the mysterious craft flew low over city traffic.
Footage purportedly showing the amazing incident that brought traffic on a busy freeway in a bustling city to a standstill last April was uploaded to YouTube on October 5, 2016, by UFO blogger Scott C. Waring.
The footage is going viral online.
The clip (see below) purportedly shows a “flying saucer UFO” captured on the dashboard camera of a couple’s car in Guangzhou on April 11, 2016, according to Waring in a recent post to his UFO Sightings Daily blog.
Waring reported that a man and a woman were driving on a busy freeway when they were forced to pull up behind several other cars parked in the middle of the road.
As the car pulled up, the woman in the car can be heard saying “Fay-de-aya,” the Chinese word for a UFO, according to Waring.
Incredibly, people were standing beside their cars in the middle of the busy freeway on both sides, looking up in the sky. Many were holding up cell phones to photograph and film the mysterious UFO flying across the sky.
The woman also got out of the car and joined the crowd, holding up her phone camera to film the alleged black flying saucer in the sky.
“The street quickly becomes a parking lot on both sides as people get out of their cars and start recording the UFO with their mobile phones,” Waring wrote on UFO Sightings Daily.
The crowd was deeply engrossed filming the UFO in the sky, and the people were unconcerned by the fact that they were holding up traffic on a freeway.
A man can be heard shouting as if in fear and a girl screamed in terror. It is uncertain why the people appeared to be freaking out as if the flying saucer was landing. But Waring offered a suggestion.
“Yes, Asians do get more afraid of the unknown than Americans,” he wrote. “It is a cultural thing you will notice if you ever travel to Asia.”
The astuteness of the UFO blogger’s observation about the “cultural thing” is questionable, but the crowd appeared agitated or probably only very excited because they believed the UFO was an extraterrestrial craft.
“Overall this is a fantastic example of a big UFO over China,” the popular UFO blogger commented.
“A crowd builds up in the middle of a highway in the Chinese city of Guangzhou,” he continued. “The street quickly becomes a parking lot on both sides as people get out of their cars and start recording the UFO with their mobile phones.”
Waring confirmed that the alleged UFO was a disk or a flying saucer and that it appeared to wobble because it was spinning as it flew along
“I also noticed, if you make it full screen, that the UFO wobbles as it is moving, much like the old 1950s movies,” he said. “It is a disk, so perhaps the disk is spinning as it moves, as many have been reported to do.”
For the benefit of his readers, the UFO blogger included a close-up shot of the alleged UFO “with added contrast to make it stand out.”
But some skeptics dismissed the video as a hoax, saying that the incident was staged.
“It’s funny considering so many people were recording that this is the only source of the video on YouTube,” a viewer commented.
Waring tried to explain why more people have not posted videos of the incident.
“Why don’t we see more videos of it? Because it takes a brave person to post something unknown on the internet that might get you and your family arrested in China,” he explained. “Since the Chinese government probably considers such videos to be top secret, and a threat to their national security.”
But other skeptical viewers suggested the footage was part of a commercial, a TV show, or a movie.
“Looks like part of a commercial – people are pointing their phones all over the place,” a viewer observed.
“This is from a movie or TV show?”
“Yes, definitely from a movie. You can tell at the very end they start panicking.”
But some wanted to know why the footage ended abruptly after only a few minutes.
“The video flashes and then stops, probably because it came to the end of its 3 min loop that many car cams have in Asia (mine does),” Waring explained. “At the end of every 3 minutes, it saves on SD card and records a new one.”
Despite the panicked reaction of the crowd, this is not the first time that a UFO has been recently sighted over Guangzhou in China. Multiple clips allegedly showing UFOs over Guangzhou surfaced online in 2011 (see below).
The clips, reportedly shot by commuters on the street of Guangzhou, show people reacting with fright and screaming as a massive UFO flew over the city.
The clips sparked a heated debate that pitted believers against skeptics. While skeptics insisted that the clips were CGI hoaxes, a Chinese film and TV post-producer insisted that the perfection of lens fluency and the flawless synthesis of the foreground and background suggested the clips were real, according to Open Minds TV.
“Even Hollywood’s special effects experts cannot deal with this material without a blue screen.”
But skeptics pointed out various discrepancies in the videos, such as the absence of a shadow reflection on the ground in some scenes and the blurring out of the video when the UFO passed behind a street lamp.
