‘Bright UFO’ spotted in Sydney identified as Chinese rocket
Baffled Sydneysiders spot ‘shining UFO’ – but the truth is even more disturbing
- A strange disc-shaped object was caught on camera flying over Sydney skies on Monday
- Bright white UFO has been seen as far north as the central coast, confusing residents
- The object was something more suspicious as it turned out to be a Chinese rocket
A strange disc-shaped object was filmed flying over the Sydney skies on Monday, prompting residents to suspect it was an alien plane.
The bizarre UFO was seen from the capital NSW to the central coast, with the bright white object leaving a trail behind.
“Did anyone see the strange light moving across the sky about 10 minutes ago?” A woman from west-central Sydney asked on Facebook.
“I hope I’m not the only one who saw it because it’s the strangest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”
The flying object was not unknown, however, with experts claiming it was a Chinese rocket.

Observers filled social media with images and videos of the object as it crossed the sky around 8 p.m. Monday evening.
He appeared in the form of a white boomerang, confusing onlookers who said he was too low to be a satellite.
“The only explanation we found was a satellite but very strange because it looked like it was under the cloud… no sound either, so obviously not an ordinary plane,” a woman posted on Facebook.
Rather, the object was a new version of the Chinese Long March 3B navigation satellites launched from the Xichang launch center, the visible part being the exhaust.
“The plume is like an exhaust gas, gas coming out when the rocket is launched. Sometimes if it happens in the evening you can see the shape and eyesight of the stranger, ”Dr Brad Tucker told the Telegraph.

Chinese rockets, which broadcast in 4K and 8K, are the latest technology used by the communist nation that is being pushed to be ready in time for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
The timing of seeing satellites over Australia’s skies is suspect, given the country signed its landmark military deal with the US and UK last week.
“Sightings like this can be rare and surprising – given their odd shape and the way they move across the sky,” said Dr Tucker.
“However, as more and more rocket launches occur – this was actually China’s second launch of the day – they are becoming more and more common.”
