The trailing cloud that web users regard as the cloud left by a midcourse ICBM interception test

The following is based on a translation of a report in Chinese media:

China Review News Agency says in its report that in the evening of May 23, web users in Ningxia, Shaanxi, Inner Mongolia and other provinces witnessed a UFO.

Judging by the photos provided by them, its trailing cloud is unique in shape. The web users suspected that the trailing cloud was left by a midcourse ICBM interception test.

On May 24, Global Times interviewed quite a few Chinese military experts, who all believe that the trailing cloud indeed looked like something left by a special test. However, they are not able to conclude that the cloud was left by a midcourse ICBM interception test as a limited number of photos cannot constitute sufficient evidence.

A Chinese military expert who wants to remain anonymous believes that the trailing cloud was too high to be left by an aircraft while that of an aircraft must be parallel to the surface of the ground instead of rising up. He regards the cloud as something left by human aerospace activity or some physical phenomenon in the atmosphere.

Moreover, the trailing cloud left by an aircraft usually disappear within a short time while that left by a midcourse ICBM interception test remains for much longer due to the lack of atmosphere at the height of the test.

China conducted three midcourse ICBM interception tests respectively on January 11, 2010, January 27, 2013 and July 23, 2014.

The trailing cloud was seen in an area where the previous three tests were carried out.

Global Times says that if this is the fourth test as expected, then China is quickly catching up with the United States.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
