UFO lovers have been stirred after a mysterious object appeared in the night sky over Australia.
In footage, shared widely online on Monday, a strange disc-shaped object was filmed flying over Sydney skies to the Central Coast.
The object captured at around 8 p.m. appeared to be in the shape of a “white boomerang,” leaving a luminous trail across the sky.
As further images and videos of the night-time miracle soon filled social media, many imaginative residents soon questioned whether it could be an alien plane.
“Did someone see a strange light spinning in the sky about 10 minutes ago?” A local resident posted on Facebook.
“I hope I’m not the only one who’s seen it because it’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
However, another resident suggested that it was probably a satellite because of the way it moved through the sky.
“The only explanation we found was a satellite, but a very strange one because it looked like it was under a cloud,” one woman posted on Facebook.
“Also there’s no sound, so clearly not a regular plane,” she said.
And it later emerged that she was not off the mark when it was revealed that the object was a new version of the Chinese rocket.
Experts confirmed that it was specifically one of two new Long March 3B navigation satellites that were launched from the Xichang Launch Center earlier in the day.
He also said that the visible part – creating the dazzling lighting effect – was the exhaust.
“Wings are like exhaust, the gas released during the launch of a rocket. Sometimes if it’s in the evening you can see stranger sizes and vision,” explains Dr. Brad Tucker Wire.
Chinese rockets are reportedly being implicated in preparation for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
Yet Dr Tucker said it was seen as a “little surprise” amid the signing of the landmark military deal with the United States and Britain last week.
“Scenes like these can be rare and surprising – given their strange shape and the way they move across the sky,” he claimed.
“However, as more rockets are launched – this was actually China’s second launch of the day, they are becoming more and more common.”
