According to reports from The Daily Mail, the odd sighting sparked over 900,000 discussions on various threads recently. A Weibo user shared an image, dismissing the possibility of it being an aircraft due to the absence of flashing lights, while others attested to the silence surrounding the unidentified object.

Described as a clear entity shaped like an "isosceles triangle" with "three light sources," the object left witnesses in awe. One account detailed its gradual dissipation, like a mist, before vanishing without a trace. The sightings took place in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanxi and Shandong.

Wang Zhuoxiao, a researcher at the Centre for Astronomy Technology at Tsinghua University, suggested that the mysterious object might be a rocket associated with a Starlink mission, according to the South China Morning Post.

In a separate incident in Europe, a Wizz Air flight attendant, Denisa Tanase, recorded an unusual pinkish UFO while flying from Luton, England, to Syzmany, Poland, recently. Tanase, baffled by the sighting, initially couldn't discern the object with her naked eyes but spotted it later in the video.

Beyond China and Europe, there is a curiosity with unexplained phenomena. A remarkable shot of what appears to be an alien inside a UFO was taken in Chicago in December 2023 by photographer Dietrich Ziegler.

The image showed a faceless, mask-like object with two eyes and a lengthy beak against a vibrant twilight sky. With a 70–200 millimeter lens, Ziegler studied the enigmatic landscape that appeared to change hue and then disappear upon closer inspection.
